It is inspiring to see how children at Dreadnought are treated with such care and respect. I feel privileged to help as a volunteer.
Dreadnought has helped me so much with my confidence and supported me in some hard times. I’ve met some amazing people, workers and young people. I’ve grown as a person and developed my skill set. I joined college last year and with the support of my Dreadnought family (Kerry mainly in group and others too) I am now a qualified teaching assistant. This is something I would of never dreamed of doing before I joined Dreadnought.
Our groups are held in the evenings throughout Cornwall, so if you have a few hours to spare and would like to get to know some astounding children and young people why not consider becoming a volunteer with us.
The benefits of volunteering include:
• Training & supervision
• Personal development
• Confidence skills
• New friends
• Make a difference
• The chance to pass on skills
• Illustration of commitment for future employers
• Your voluntary hours certificated annually
• And so much more….
We operate a buddy system so you will have a volunteer alongside you until you find your feet. Volunteers are our most valuable resource and we want you to feel comfortable. On beginning work with the Charity, close monitoring of suitability is observed. Before having contact with children all employees and volunteers must complete our induction and basic safeguarding training. This is re-visited every two years. Please note that all our volunteers are DBS checked to an enhanced level.
