Opportunity of the Month


Volunteer for NYAS

Do you want to make a difference to a young person’s life?

Do you have 1- 4 hours per month to spare?

We urgently require more volunteers, so why not volunteer as a mentor/befriender for NYAS as an Independent Visitor for children and young people in care. 

As a volunteer you will:

·         Have fun, take young people on outings and maybe share a hobby , sport or interest

·         Offer support and a listening ear and be a positive influence in a young person’s life and help build self- esteem and confidence

You don’t need any special qualifications

·         We are looking for reliable and dependable people from all walks of life

·         We will provide training and on-going support. We will pay expenses to a set limit.

Here is what some of our young people and volunteers have to say about this rewarding role:

"We have get fun together with my Independent Visitor. Recently we have been go-karting, trampolining, and he is here to support me not to judge"

"She has boosted my confidence, now I feel like when I go places I can just relax and have fun"

"My young person always looks forward to me coming, they have had such a disjointed life, I am a stable figure in their life and this has to be important for them, as everything else changes around them a lot."
