Early Years support volunteers with children and parents in Sparkhill and Hall Green.

Can you play with children and talk to adults?

We run a number of different activities devoted to supporting parents with children under 5. They run over a few locations in the Sparkhill area, details below.

We especially need volunteers for Monday afternoons for a very popular group.

Would you like to assist our skilled staff team in ensuring that these sessions and stay & play groups run smoothly? You do not necessarily need experience - we can train you.

The role includes recognising if families need further support during the session or at home, giving out language development messages and giving advice handouts where helpful. There is an after session discussion where you will have the opportunity to share anything you have noticed.

WHAT ARE THE SPRINGFIELD PROJECT LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for reliable volunteers who can model good play and communication, who can listen to parents and who will be proactive in working with the rest of the team in sessions.

You do not necessarily need experience of working with children.

Let us know if this sounds like you!
