Summer Volunteering Project

Fantastic volunteering opportunity for students!

All University of Sunderland in London students are welcome to apply; may be of particular interest to NURSING STUDENTS 


 

Tower Hamlets School holiday club. The club is for children and young people with disabilities and complex medical needs in Tower Hamlets and runs from the 1st to the 19th August, Monday to Friday 9am – 4pm, in a local school, next to Island Gardens DLR station.

We are looking for keen and enthusiastic volunteers to help and young people with disabilities and complex needs to take part in and access a variety of activities in the Summer Holidays Club and have a fantastic summer!

 

Volunteers should be able to offer from 1 to 3 weeks during the scheme period, plus 2 days of their time for induction training in July. University of Sunderland in London students will asked to commit for two or three days a week (to fit around your studies).

 

Each holiday club will be run by skilled and experience leaders, with medical support from a qualified nurse and is supported by the volunteers.

 

It’s a great opportunity to get involved in a local community project, learn communication skills, support children and young people with disabilities and multisensory impairments and have a positive impact.
