What is involved: Setting up play activities and art / craft activities for young children age 0-3, welcoming new carers and children to the session, setting up snack time, leading story and song time (optional), encouraging all to help with tidying up

Why you should sign up: 

If you enjoy meeting new people, interacting with babies and young children and want to help keep this essential community resource going then this is the role for you.

In the funding cuts to Children’s Centres South Oxford Family Room lost all of it’s funding and staff.

We are hoping to keep SOFR going as a community led initiative and rely largely on volunteers.

References are required for this role, however as you are not on your own with children, a DBS check is not needed. You will be offered an induction as a volunteer so that you know where everything is, what to expect and to answer any questions you may have.
