Working with Young People

Working with Young People

There is something special and rewarding about doing something to help others. Everyone is blessed when we work together.

YOUth work is something that anyone can help with. We have all been through it, some of use have made mistakes but learnt from them, some of us have gifts and talents that we can share and some of us are just warm and welcoming and happy to chat to others. We can all play a part and be a part of our community.

If you would like to help directly support young people please contact Parish Youth Worker Steve Dewar steve@wiltshireyfc.org.uk for more information

We have a volunteer process and some simple staps to take so that everyone is happy. It starts  with you asking the  questions - How can I help? . We can then meet up with you and have a chat. You will be encouraged, supported with training and supervision, given opportunities to develope skills and ideas. You would be a valued membere of our team and an active part in the community making a positive impact on a younger generation.
