INC brings together Edinburgh’s brightest and boldest charities and child care companies (The Action Group, Kidzcare, Lothian Autistic Society) to provide holiday playschemes and residential opportunities for children with disabilities from across the city.
Each year they run a play scheme during the School holidays for children with additional support needs. This is staffed by a mixture of experienced paid workers and volunteers.
This is voluntary work opportunities for students aged 16 – 18 and provide excellent experience in childcare and further individuals’ interpersonal and leadership skills. They’re also a lot of fun!
The scheme is based at various venues in Edinburgh and the Easter playscheme 2016 will run between 29th March – 8th April 2016, Mon – Fri, daytime hours in Edinburgh.
Volunteers will need to commit to working 9 – 4pm, but are under no obligation to do the whole scheme. Training week begins on 21st March 2016.
The closing date for Easter applications is Monday 22nd February 2016. All applicants along with the volunteers will need to attend interview, undergo reference and PVG checks, and complete a health questionnaire before working on the play scheme.
