Independent Visitors (Shropshire)

Could you befriend and support a child in care?

We are looking for volunteers for our Independent Visitors Project in Shropshire!

Independent Visitors are volunteers who befriend and spend time with a child or young person within Local Authority care. Our volunteers enjoy the challenge of building a lasting friendship and the children benefit greatly from a consistent, fun relationship with someone outside the care system.

This is a long-term, one to one commitment.

Full training and ongoing support will be given, and out of pocket expenses paid for mileage and activities.
