Volunteering at Can Do is also good for your career. There’s the chance to progress through the Can Do ranks by becoming a group leader, bus escort or playscheme assistant. Some of our former volunteers have even become members of staff or used their experience to work in care, social work, health or education.
Can Do welcomes volunteers aged 15 and over, and you’ll usually work on a 1-to-1 basis with one of the Can Do kids, but you won’t be chucked in at the deep end. When you volunteer with us you’ll receive a full day’s training covering areas such as child protection, challenging behaviour and communication, and all volunteers will complete a PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) check.
