West Sussex County Council have opportunities for volunteers at our Children and Family Centres and Youth Services across the local area eg administration, operating the toy library, assisting at Play and Learn sessions, Baby Rhyme Time groups, Youth services, Music and Movement groups

The time commitment is usually 2 to 3 hours per week/fortnight.  We offer access to free training and pay travel expenses.  References are required and a DBS (police check) will be obtained at no charge to volunteers).
