A role that we are always looking to fill is a chaperone. A method of support that we can provide to families is taking the disabled child to an activity which stimulates the child’s needs, as well as providing the family with a bit of a break. Therefore, for the child to be able to attend an activity they require a chaperone.
A chaperone’s duty is not to provide the transport, but to accompany the child to and from the activity and be a friend to the child throughout the day ensuring that they are safe and happy.
The requirements for becoming a chaperone are fairly simple:
- Free time
- Willing to be DBS checked
- A caring and patient nature
- Willing to go on child protection training organised by us
- Training in the specific needs of the individual child provided by us
- You are not required to be a carer or have any carer qualifications
