Do you have 6-8 hours a month to spare on an evening or weekend when you could spend time with a young person?
North Tyneside Council’s Participation, Advocacy and Engagement Team are currently looking for volunteers to be Independent Visitors for children in care in North Tyneside. The scheme involves being matched with a young person who is currently in the care system, including children placed in North Tyneside and in neighbouring authorities. The scheme is designed so you meet the young person on a regular basis to do activities you both enjoy and hopefully build up a positive relationship. This can be anything from supporting the young person to join a sports team, seeing films at the cinema, cycling, bowling or dog walking.
