For those interested in volunteering within our Sure Start Children’s Centre, we will be holding two training sessions at Wellholme Park Children’s Centre on Wednesday 15th June and Wednesday 22nd of June from 12 pm – 2 pm.
Volunteering can help you make friends, learn new skills, advance your career, or simply make you feel happier and healthier, not to mention being part of the high quality childcare service Sure Start Children’s Centres are proud to provide to the local area!
If interested, you need to book your place and complete both courses.
Sure Start Children’s Centres and North Halifax Partnership will be holding a drop-in event during Volunteers Week (1 – 7th June) which is the perfect chance to hear about our volunteering opportunities.
