CSV are recruiting volunteers for innovative new family support project in Lambeth Community Service Volunteers (CSV) is recruiting volunteers in Lambeth for its Volunteers supporting Families project.
Funded by the Department for Education, the Lambeth Volunteers supporting Families project is one of seven new projects to open across the country and will be working in partnership with Lambeth Council to complement the work of Social Care Teams.
CSV is currently looking for inspiring volunteers who understand the difficulties faced by families with additional or complex needs, who are good listeners and are keen to offer emotional and practical support and mentor families in their local community.
“This is an excellent opportunity for anyone that wants to volunteer to make a positive difference to families across Lambeth. The skills and knowledge you will gain while volunteering with CSV are boundless. No matter what your level of experience or skill set, we would love to hear from you“- Katie Grammer- VsF Project Coordinator.
Volunteers will need to live locally and be able to commit to at least one home visit a week for an agreed period of time. It is a demanding role but CSV will provide training and support every step of the way.
CSV is the UK’s leading volunteering and learning charity, established in 1962. Last year 150,000 were inspired by CSV to make a difference in their communities and over 5000 young people were helped by CSV to develop new skills and get on to the career ladder.
