Volunteer to be a Lone Parent Champion
We’re currently looking for single parents to volunteer to get involved in our Lone Parent Champion training programme starting next year in Glasgow. This is a 3-day course aimed at empowering individuals to champion the rights of single parents regarding the changes to the benefit system and welfare reform whilst offering peer support to other single parents.
On completion of the training, we’ll continue to work with you and support our volunteers to take this role further.
For example, you could:
- get involved in OPFS group-work sessions
- provide one to one support to other parents
- be the voice of single parents on a committee by talking about your personal experiences
If you have a passion for supporting others and have the time to commit then please get in touch. Don’t worry about a lack of experience as training and ongoing support will be provided.
If you would like to find out more about this great volunteering opportunity, please get in touch and we can meet for a chat to discuss this role in more detail.
