Can you help us to keep supporting our young members?

We always need volunteers to come and help during our Open Day and Activity Weekends for our young members so if you’d like to come and help, get in touch with Youth Leader Lexie, [email protected]

Our Open Day involves facilitating workshop sessions for our young members as well as making sure that they are getting involved, making friends, and enjoying themselves. Our Activity Weekends are normally held at PGL centres around the UK and involve supporting the young members to take part in the activities – a lot of the time you get to do the activities too!

You will receive safeguarding training, as well as a briefing around the unique difficulties our young members face and how you need to adapt what you do to meet their needs. You will also get your travel expenses reimbursed.

Previous experience of working with children and young people is desirable, but not necessary.

Keep the children well wrapped up and snug and warm, give them Calpol if their temperature is high, keep the fluids going, small amounts of nourishing food every couple of hours and lots of opportunity to sleep will all help a child recover. HOWEVER, if they have a high temperature for a couple of days or their breathlessness or colour becomes worse take them to the GP for a check-up. If the infection is Viral there will be no point in antibiotics but if the GP thinks antibiotics will help they will be prescribed. If you are worried at all always get your child checked by a doctor. ... See MoreSee Less
