What You'll Do: 

We are a charity that harnesses the transformative power of play and exercise to help vulnerable children recover from complex trauma. Our goal is to nurture the confidence of every child we work with and develop valuable life skills to help them reach their full potential.

Volunteers will support children at Solidarity Sports projects during school holidays. In practice this may be running through playgrounds with our children, supporting them as they try bouldering for the first time, ice-skating, and many more fun activities. Volunteers will build a positive, trusting relationship with our children, and make them feel special and valued at all times during our projects.  

All volunteers will be DBS checked before volunteering.

Summer Holiday Project

Dates: Our holiday project this Summer is running from Monday 29th July - Friday 30th August, 10am-4pm.

During this period we are going to be located in Holland’s park school for the first four weeks. Our project this summer will be Olympics themed! 

For the final week (Tuesday 27th August - Friday 30th August), we are taking the children to various activities across London, which may include anything from bouldering, bowling to visiting museums!

 

Location: Holland Park School, Airlie Gardens, Campden Hill Rd, London W8 7AF
For the last week, our volunteer manager Joanna will contact you with details of meeting point.

 

Reimbursement: Travel is reimbursed up to £15 and lunch up to £4.50 with receipts provided.

 

Requirements: All volunteers will be DBS checked before volunteering. We will help you obtain an enhanced DBS check for free if you haven't received one in the last three years. 

 

Flexibility: This is a very flexible commitment – you can do 1 day in this week, 2 days, or all 5 days if you’re keen!

We do ask however that volunteers commit to the 10am-4pm time slot, as you will be paired with two children during this project, and if you are not able to stay for that amount of time there will not be enough volunteers to adequately supervise the children (there should be at 1 volunteer:2 children ratio at all times). 

 

During the school term we also have after school clubs running every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 3:30-5:30pm.

 

What We're Looking For: 
You MUST have a passion for working with children!
