Volunteers

 

 

 

This page is for the Children and Youth Volunteers where they can find out about different resources and training opportunities. Thank you very much for being part of the wonderful Children and Youth Team, the children, the young people and the church are very grateful. Keep going and keep inspiring the children and young people in your care. You are doing an amazing job. 

We as a church have a duty to protect the children and young people in our care and all our volunteers and paid employees working in our groups are checked through the Disclosure & Barring Service and are offered regular training in safeguarding. Our safeguarding officers are Rosemary Willock 01737 763769 and Helen Greaves 01737 766852. A copy of our safeguarding policy can be viewed on the following link. http://www.methodist.org.uk/downloads/safe-update-3-1110-childrenandyoungpeople.pdf

If you would like to become a volunteer, please get in touch with Sassi, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with.
