Volunteering and Employment

Could a few hours of your time change your life and lives of others?

We have volunteer opportunities at your local Children's Centres in the following areas:

Parent Champions

Parent Champions are volunteers who are involved in planning the services delivered by Children's Centres. Parent Champions represent the local community; they ensure that they provide a voice for the views of the local community.

We are currently welcoming applications from parents living in the Siddal, Southowram, Boothtown, Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Vale and Todmorden areas.
