Volunteers play a vital role in TrinityLearning, enabling us to work with children, teachers and the wider school community and give them the support they need. From helping to set up workshop spaces to supporting children’s emotional literacy, our outreach work would not be possible without the invaluable input of our volunteers and we are very grateful and proud to work alongside them.

We’re committed to the safety and wellbeing of all those we work with and all volunteers who work with children are subject to DBS clearance and given relevant safeguarding training. We welcome volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds and offer all our volunteers training and support.

What do our volunteers say? I would say, even if just a little bit of you might like to volunteer then don’t be scared and even if you don’t feel very confident then go for it because there’s lots of support and training and there’s other people and there’s things to help you so you don’t have to do it all yourself.” Click here to read more about our volunteer Katie and how she supports our work.

Can you put your knitting skills to good use to make a small rabbit for our Thinking Books project – a school-based project which helps children to understand their own and other people’s feelings better.
