Volunteer with Playskill

At Playskill we are very lucky to have a team of highly talented and skilled volunteers who allow us to make our groups as friendly and as well structured as they are.    

Our team includes volunteer group support workers, parent support workers, admin volunteers, therapist volunteers (including speech and language therapists,paediatric occupational therapists and paediatric physiotherapists), specialist teachers, sibling support workers, translators and our wonderful trustees. 

Without the support of our amazing volunteering team we wouldn’t be able to provide our families with the little extras that make our sessions so special. When our parents/carers arrive they are always greeted by a friendly face offering them a hot drink and a warm welcome.  Our volunteers are ‘shining stars’ to us and a big part of our Playskill family!

We are always looking for further volunteers to increase our team and help us to provide even more support to our families. If you are an individual over the age of 18, or an organisation looking for volunteering opportunities, we would love to speak to you about how you can become involved in supporting Playskill.

What are we looking for in our volunteers?  People who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our families, who are well organised and enthusiastic, have a ‘can do’ attitude and most of all who want to be part of our Playskill family.  We do ask that you can make a regular commitment to us in your volunteering role.    

We also really welcome trained professionals e.g. therapists, teachers, family support workers or people looking to return to their profession after a career break who require some experience working with children/families with physical difficulties.

Please note all volunteers will be subject to an informal interview, relevant DBS checks and references.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Playskill family.
