Volunteers needed: From supporting people looking for work to making a real difference to young people, there’s a Somerset Council volunteer role just waiting to be filled!
Two openings are available with the Youth Justice Team:
• Family Group Conference Volunteers: A family group conference is led by family members to plan and make decisions for a child who is at risk. Volunteers in this role support parents who may struggle to express their views.
• Reparation Mentors: Volunteers in this role support young people to fully participate in reparation work as part of a Court Order. This is a really rewarding role where you are actively supporting the young person to develop life skills whilst supporting their local community.
In addition the Schools Appeals Panel is looking for independent members either with or without direct experience in schools. Panel members help to make sure all the appeals for maintained schools and academies are conducted in a fair and transparent way. Appeals can include admissions, exclusions, and transport.
