FSN values the contribution that volunteers make. They complement and support our staff bringing with them a wide range of skills and knowledge.
FSN seeks to recruit volunteers who are enthusiastic, have a willingness to learn, and have a friendly caring and helpful approach to children, young people, families that is non-discriminating.
How do I become a Volunteer?
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at FSN please contact our Human Resources tel: 01424 423683 ext. 30 who will offer information about volunteering opportunities, or complete and return our Volunteer Application Form link and Equal Opportunities Form link.
What happens next?
Once you have completed your application form (help is available to do this) a visit will be arranged.
FSN works with vulnerable children and families and all our staff and volunteers are DBS checked. You will be asked to fill in a Disclosure & Barring Services Form and to bring in documents to confirm your identity. We will also ask you to provide contact details for 2 referees. Once this is completed you will be ready to start as a volunteer.
Who will show me what to do?
The Manager/Leader of the project will take you through ‘Induction’ which will explain FSN’s background, your role and responsibilities. They will also introduce you to the people you will be supporting.
