Autism Weekend Club Support Volunteer
Our ultimate aim at a Kith & Kids’ club is that everybody has lots of fun in an environment in which our members feel safe and relaxed and are able to fully express themselves. We aim that our members receive 2:1 volunteer support. This helps ensure that the sessions have lots of energy and enthusiasm. It also gives new volunteers a chance to learn further support tips from experienced volunteers.
Our weekend clubs allow our members to develop key skills and relationships in a fun, friendly and safe setting that is individually centred to their needs. Workshops include music therapy, drama, arts & crafts, sports & games and much more. We even enjoy trips out! Recently groups have attended swimming, museums, crazy golf and bowling.
Weekend Clubs take place every two weeks, alternating on Saturday/Sunday afternoons from 12.30 to 5pm during school term-times.
Our volunteers play a hugely vital role in supporting our members to develop social skills that can be transferred to their day-to-day lives!
