Volunteer to Work with Rainbows Children for Noah’s Ark

Posted on

Noah’s Ark are currently looking for volunteers who can spare 2/3 hours a week to work alongside children from the ages of 4 – 11. As well as the main Community Cafe and Counselling Centre in Ovenden they also have outreach projects in Elland, Brighouse, Beech Hill (Pellon Lane) and Hebden Bridge.

They will provide full in-house training and continued support.

  • The aim of RAINBOWS is to help children who have faced loss to believe in their own goodness and the value of their family.
  • Rainbows is a structured programme to help children talk through their feelings with other children who are experiencing loss in their family.
  • The Rainbows programme helps by providing a safe setting. They use adult facilitators and materials, journals, storybooks, games and creative activities to help lead them gently through the grieving process.
  • The children learn to develop trust, express their feelings, be heard and valued and work together as part of a group.

If you are interested and would like to have a chat please contact Andrea Turpin on 01422 300457 or email rainbows@noahsarkcafe.org.uk
