Rivers Support Award Scheme
We are currently seeking volunteers for two roles: Mentors are needed to support women within Rivers LPC’s learning and employability programme with reading, literacy and numeracy skills, and Group Support Volunteers are needed to help facilitate group learning activities, consisting of 4-5 women, to help progress their independent learning skills.
Volunteers for both roles need to be sensitive, patient and non-judgmental, with great interpersonal skills and the ability to read and write English. Volunteers are asked to offer 3-6 hours over two mornings each week, during term-time only. The project takes place in community venues across Crawley, and offers a great opportunity to help make a difference within the local area.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community, but please note, due to the nature of our work volunteer roles are restricted to women only. Schedule 9 (1) of the Equality Act 2010 applies.
As part of our Rivers Support Award programme, volunteers for both roles will be provided with FREE Employment Skills training.
