Children Heard and Seen

Get involved.

Volunteering Support

This year, our service benefited from the support of more volunteers than ever before. Existing volunteers continued to offer their skills in book keeping, data collection, mentoring and group work, whilst new volunteers played a vital role in outreach and fundraising work. There are more ways than ever before to get involved and support children with a parent in prison. We are currently looking for support in:

  • Running online activity groups
  • Volunteer mentoring
  • Admin support
  • Donating second hand laptops to allow children to access online support
  • Helping to run our 2021 Residential at the Hill End centre
  • and much more!

We can work around your skills, schedule and needs to build a volunteer relationship that suits you best.

Volunteer mentoring with us

A Children Heard and Seen Mentor is a caring and responsible adult volunteer who in partnership with a child develops a trusting relationship through which the child can seek and receive support and guidance.

A Mentor helps to ensure that a child has the opportunity to try new things, access resources, develop resilience, coping strategies and life skills to help the child make sense of their situation and feelings in order that they are able to make positive life choices and maximize their potential. Please see the job description for more information.

If you are interested in volunteering as a mentor please contact us on 07557 339258 or email us on info@childrenheardandseen.co.uk for more information.
