Working alongside Staff with supporting our young people with additional needs to spend quality time with their friends in the community, helping them build their independence and social skills. The main goal of a support worker at Friends and Places Together is to ensure people have an enriching and fun social life while also remaining as safe as possible.

As a volunteer you will gain valuable experience of working with young people and those with additional needs. If you want to get into the area of Health and Social Care this could act as a great springboard into the workforce and would show you have ample experience. Although never guaranteed, we aspire to offer as much paid work to our volunteers after being with us for a committed period of time. We also cover any expenses incurred.

We need young people who are enthusiastic and willing to help others for a great cause. We need those can bring excitement and creativity to the role or simply have a passion for health and social care work.
As we grow as an organisation we need as many people as possible to help vulnerable people in the community.
