Clare’s Story

Volunteering has a vast presence in Barnardo's Children’s centres. The staff and families receive a wealth of skills and experience, specialised support and a luxury of focus in some aspects. Volunteers extend our services in so many ways, reaching out to the UK's most vulnerable children and their families.

In this video we hear from Clare who shares her Volunteering journey within Barnardo’s from Service User to Volunteer.

Clare volunteers with the South Essex Children’s Centres, who provide local services, both universal and targeted, which inform and support parents with children under 5 years old.

I would definitely, definitely recommend volunteering to anybody who has got any time to spare, it’s so rewarding and I’m sure it would lead onto greater things.
