Volunteering with children (for females from countries indicated only)

Belfast, United Kingdom

2 , Closed

Опис на проектот

The Erasmus+ volunteers will be based in 2 different Refuges (1 in Belfast, 1 in Lisburn), which provide safe accommodation for women and children who have suffered domestic violence. The volunteer activities will focus on the children, helping to provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for them. Most of the E+ volunteers' tasks will be based in the Refuge Playrooms, playing with the children and contributing to new ideas for regular or seasonal activities. The volunteers will also regularly help in the Creche and there will also be group work with children and young people. There may be a possibility to work with the women later in the placement, but this is NOT guaranteed. Volunteers will live in shared accommodation with E+ volunteers from different projects. The shared houses are in South and East Belfast and the volunteers will travel daily to the Refuge or creche. Sending Organisations for this project have already been identified.


Сместување, храна и транспорт

Volunteers will live in shared houses in Belfast, will have their own bedrooms and will share kitchen, living room and bathroom space. They will receive a bike and if necessary will have public transport costs covered for the North Belfast (bus) and Lisburn (train) Refuges. Volunteers will receive pocket money and money for food each week.


Обуки за време на проектот

Volunteers will receive induction and orientation training on arrival, both generic and specific to Belfast and Lisburn Women's Aid. They will receive an organisational Volunteer Induction plus training in Child Protection and in other relevant training. Belfast and Lisburn Women's Aid deliver in house training and when relevant, volunteers will be able to attend such training. There may be occasional opportunities to attend relevant external training also. Volunteers will be registered onto the OLS system to support language learning.
