Volunteer Support Worker - The Base @ Tobin
About the Volunteer Opportunity
Bringing Additional Support to Everyone – The BASE @ Tobin runs from Tobin Centre, Moortown.
It is a five-year programme funded by The National Lottery Community Fund NI designed to meet the requirements of children and young people with additional support needs. The programme was launched in January 2020 and has a total of 143 registered families from across Mid-Ulster.
There is a total of 183 young people with a wide range of additional support needs registered with The BASE @ Tobin.
The programme is designed to facilitate the engagement of these young people within the community, providing an opportunity to participate in “every day” activities enjoyed by other young people.
Our volunteer role would involve supporting our staff at Summer Scheme. This includes building relationships with the children, playing games with them and encouraging them to participate.
Our children absolutely love coming the The BASE and being able to attend Summer Scheme improves their self confidence and sense of belonging. It is so rewarding to be part of this very special project, delivering a wonderful service to our very special children.
