Gympanzees is a non-profit organisation providing exercise, play and friendship for 0-25years olds with disabilities. We are running Gympanzees Pop Up’s over the Summer holidays.

84% of children and young people with disabilities can't access regular leisure facilities and are experiencing isolation and risks to their physical and mental health. The summer holidays are a particularly difficult time. See our crowdfunding video for details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmeyfFs_n0g

The Pop Up will provide a fabulous facility for children to enjoy and for families to be able to get out of the house and meet others in their situation. Our pop up will include an indoor playground, gym, soft play room, music room, 2 sensory rooms, trampolines and a café. Parents will be fully responsible for their children during their visit but there will be full time staff to help them on the equipment etc. Volunteers will be on hand to welcome families, assist with car parking, serve in the café and help with general queries.

This year we are kindly being hosted by Kingsweston School. We need volunteers to assist in delivering this wonderful facility. For information on Gympanzees please visit our website www.gympanzees.org

Ideally but not essential, you need to be:

* Experienced in working with children/young people with disabilities

* DBS checked for a current position

* Enthusiastic, energetic, friendly & professional

* Able to work in a team

* Be available to work at least half a day - shift times: 9.30 – 13.30, 13.00-17.00

* Be able to commit to some week day and/or weekend days between 29th July – 23rd August 2019 On top of the knowledge that you are improving the lives of many disabled children and young people, and their families, you will receive:

-  Training – depending on your experience

- A written reference at the end of the pop up

- A Gympanzees t-shirt
