SNAP Herts, Unit 5, 181 Verulam Road, St Albans, Herts , AL3 4DR
SNAP Herts runs a holiday scheme in St Albans called The Venturers for young people aged 15-19 years old with a Learning Disability, some of whom have higher additional care needs. The Venturers provides a programme of outings by minibus, eg shopping trips, bowling, and visits to other attractions. The outings will take place on two days a week throughout August, on the 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th. With volunteers working alongside our qualified staff, the clients have more opportunities to communicate and actively engage, giving them a better quality of attention and stimulation.
Specific skills and experience are not necessary, but we do ask all our volunteers to attend a two-hour Safeguarding (child protection) workshop on Friday 30th July, and a SNAP General Training session on the same day.
If youare thnking about a career in Childcare, Social Work or a similar field, this could be the valuable experience you need for your CV!
NB. Please apply by 25th June 2010 to allow time for CRB checks to be processed.
