We are looking for new leaders of High 5s
Are you interested in giving back to your community?
Do you have experience of running a youth group or weekly club?
Would you like to expand your skill set, lead a fabulous team and provide exciting and invaluable opportunities to young people with learning disabilities and additional needs?
And are you available on a Thursday evening for a couple of hours, with additional time to put towards planning?
Then becoming a volunteer Leader at High 5s might just be the thing for you! We are currently looking for at least two new adult volunteers who can take on the leadership of the group, which is supported by a team of weekly group volunteers.
High 5s is an active youth club for members aged 8 to 18, meeting once a week during term time. The emphasis is on fun and socialising together, offering both structured and unstructured play opportunities. Parents, carers and siblings are welcome to come and join in too.
The simple process we follow when recruiting new volunteers is:
1. You complete our application form.
2. You’ll be invited to an informal meeting with the current High 5 group leader.
3. Two references will be collected.
4. We’ll send you an acceptance letter.
5. You must complete the mandatory DBS check.
6. Start volunteering!
Upon joining us, part of your induction will include reading through our most important policies and you will be given the opportunity to take part in appropriate training, such as Safeguarding, Health & Safety and First Aid. We hope to have the new leaders ready to start while our current leaders are still in post to allow for appropriate hand over training.

Deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 20th March 2023.
