Families First Children's Group Work

Families First offer two Youth groups, Schools work and Holiday Activities.

The two youth groups meet-up one evening a week on alternate weeks to each other,the groups currently meet between 7pm to 9pm on Wednesday evenings. The Families First Youth Group is a group befriending project; the youths are referred for a variety of reasons and they benefit from the wide-range of activities offered and getting to know new people. Activities in the past have included bowling, paintballing, swimming and a Come Dine with Me experience!

Families First also support school pupils through group work at three High Schools in the local area. Through a variety of activities and programmes, these groups aim to explore childrens's worries in a safe environment, boost their confidence at school and to help increase school attendance.

There is also the possibility to continue volunteering into the summer holidays with Families First Holiday Activities.

These projects are looking to expand their numbers of volunteers so please do apply! Volunteers will have to complete core training on the 21st of September and get a PVG. For more information please visit the Families First website. APPLICATIONS WILL CLOSE ON WEDNESDAY THE 20TH FOR THIS PROJECT AT 5PM
