Help young people in care to meet their full potential

11 Apr 2013

Want to do something amazing in your spare time? Manchester Children’s Rights are recruiting Independent Visitors to volunteer in Manchester and throughout the North West.

You will be important to the child you visit and befriend, and will provide a listening ear and do fun activities with them.

You will receive full training, support for yourself and be put in touch with other Independent Visitors for peer support and advice. You will also receive expenses. The biggest reward, though, will be knowing that you are doing something worthwhile with a young person and giving them the opportunity to develop a meaningful relationship. 

Manchester Children's Rights are particularly interested in hearing from males and people from black minority ethnic groups who are under-represented in their service. They are also interested in hearing from retired professionals who have experience of working with young people, e.g. former members of the police, probation and fire services.

Please make your friends/colleagues/contacts aware of this opportunity.
