This is an exciting opportunity for Mobile Play Workers to be part of a multi-disciplinary Family Support team, contributing to a safe and stimulating childcare and support experience for parents and carers within Family Lives policies and procedures. The Mobile Workers will undertake centre based activity to assist with play work as required and as directed by the Mobile lead.

You will also work closely with the home visiting service volunteers and parenting lead in delivering a joined up package of early support for families.

Family Lives was set up over 40 years ago by volunteers who wanted to ensure any family in crisis had somewhere to turn. Today, volunteers are at the very heart of the work we do to support families and we have over 300 working across the organisation.
