Volunteers needed in 2013 for a Short Break for Children with Additional Needs and Disabilities

SSAFA Forces Help runs an adventure break every summer for tri-service children with additional needs and disabilities. Volunteer coaches support the children on a one-to-one basis. Previous experience is not essential but you must be over 18, have a good sense of humour, lots of stamina, a reasonable level of fitness and a total commitment to helping children. Informal interviews will be held in March 2013. If selected, you will be required to attend one residential training weekend, either; 6th and 7th April 2013 or 11th and 12th May 2013. Volunteers, who have already supported a child on a previous SSAFA Forces Help short break, are also needed for the short break for Siblings and young Carers from 25th May until the 1st June 2013.
