Here at Chopsticks we welcome anyone that would like to lend a helping hand! Members of the Tesco Northallerton team regularly enjoy coming to see us and helping us by working alongside our Members. We can never have too much help!
As a volunteer you are given the opportunity to gain work experience in one of the following areas: Working in our kindling production workshop, assisting ChopShed with the creation of garden items, going out grass cutting or even helping out with our Thursday Crafts Class, ChopArts! We also welcome anyone who would like to help us with our fundraising.
Like most charities, Chopsticks works with vulnerable adults and therefore a DBS check must be undertaken prior to working alone with any of our Members.
We also welcome those who are interested in making the Care sector their future and are currently working with Darlington College to give work placements to some of their students. These young people have the opportunity to not only work with our Members in their everyday activities, but also to shadow our Outreach worker and spend some time with the NYCC special needs young people's Hub and Personalised Learning Pathways clients upstairs. These are great personal development opportunities that help to improve self-confidence.
Volunteering for a charity is a very rewarding experience and we would love your help! If you are interested then please contact Jan on firstname.lastname@example.org.
