Volunteer Activity Lead

The playground is looking for enthusiastic people with a skill, talent or activity idea that children may enjoy or benefit from while at the playground. For example, someone to lead craft activities in the art room, a football coach, a pizza chef or a dancer.

It would be great to have a variety of activities that children can try and maybe find a hidden talent! The playworkers are curating the play environment and keeping things safe and well run. We are keen to welcome volunteers who can bring some extra energy and interest to open access sessions.

We ask that you run your activity at the same time and day each week and for the duration of a term, which are 6 or 7 weeks long.

The term time sessions run from 3:30 – 5:30pm Monday – Friday.

The start and end dates of the terms are below and we ask if you could try and get an application in at least 3 weeks before the start of a term (so we have time to meet you and process your DBS)

  • 31 October – 16 December (7 weeks)
  • 3 January – 10 February (6 weeks)
  • 20 February – 31 March (6 weeks)
  • 17 April – 26 May (6 weeks)
