We have been inundated with requests for parents/carers wishing to volunteer, this year as well as having some of our previous volunteers, from 2015-2016, continuing into this year - so, thank you! We currently have approximately 25 volunteers helping in school and in the Children's Centre and many of these are Horsenden parents/carers with a number completing a college course at the same time.
Many of our volunteers support reading which is a Horsenden focus for this year but we also have volunteers supporting children's development in the early years.
We have currently have to stop inducting new volunteers for the moment but plan to recruit a few more people in January 2017.
Additionally, we have a number of parents/carers who speak other languages who are willing to translate for parents/carers with no or limited English and their support is greatly appreciated. We currently have people willing to translate with the following languages: Polish, Somali, Tamil, Romanian and a few others (which I will update as soon as I have the full details). If you are a parent/carer who speaks another language and are happy to offer your translation skills should they be needed, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to the list as it is always great to have a bank of people to call upon.
