Help set-up and facilitate new social activities for our service users

Coordination / Projects volunteers needed for Berkshire West Your Way

We are looking to recruit volunteers who can primarily facilitate social groups or activities. These groups could be held at our offices, or across Reading and the West Berkshire area.

The groups range from coffee socials, to art and craft, table tennis, board games etc.

We are looking to develop new groups and would require support to administrate these.

The role would involve

  • setting up any activities
  • supporting service users

There would also be some administrative support of the staff team, but this would be in preparation for groups/activities, or recording attendance at events.
