Call for Keen Committed Volunteers from the National Youth Advocacy Service

21-Apr-2017

 

The National Youth Advocacy Service is making a call for dedicated and keen volunteers to become Independent Visitors for children and young people in care.  

In those times of stress and loneliness, there is a gap left by the absence of friends and relatives who would normally be there to tend to their needs, however great or small. The loneliness itself can be discouraging, often scary; it can sometimes lead to other concerns, such as unhappiness or depression.

National Youth Advocacy Service are providing the opportunity for you to help vulnerable people build their confidence and self-esteem.

The National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS) is looking for reliable and dependable people from all walks of life to volunteer as mentors or befrienders as an Independent Visitor for children and young people in care in the local area.

As a volunteer you will:

  • Have fun, take young people on outings and maybe share a hobby , sport or interest
  • Offer support and a listening ear and be a positive influence in a young person’s life and help build self- esteem and confidence

You don’t need any special qualifications, as NYAS will provide training.

Once trained, you will have the on-going backing and authority to support matters that concern that vulnerable person, who they could call on in their free time.

Do you want to make a difference to a young person’s life?

Do you have 1- 4 hours per month to spare?

This is a rewarding opportunity for the right candidates; with training and experience with a national charity, as well as sought-after experience in a specialist role.

If you would like to apply or if you would like more information; you can contact NYAS on 0151 649 8700, by email at main@nyas.net, or visit the NYAS website.
