Safe Families For Children are recruiting Community Volunteer Managers.
Safe Families for Children is a Christian charity which started in Chicago in 2003. Safe Families came to the UK in 2012 and is now partnering with local authorities in the Midlands, Greater Manchester, Mersey, the South Coast and the North East. Our goal is to help families in times of crisis and reduce the number of children being ‘looked after’ by offering respite care to children and befriending struggling parents and carers.
The organisation is expanding into Somerset and are looking to start supporting vulnerable families from April 2018. To help get ready for this launch they are looking for 2 part-time Community Volunteer Managers to join the team to recruit and train volunteers and engage with and inspire local churches.
The Community Volunteer Manager is a key staff role with responsibility for ensuring that Safe Families’ work within a given region is resourced with a growing base of well-trained and well-supported volunteers. Key areas of work include promoting Safe Families among churches and other community organisations, securing the interest of new volunteer applicants and assisting them through the Safe Families ‘Safer Recruitment’ process, and developing a network of locally-based Safe Families volunteer coordinators.
Closing date is 6th October 2017.
