  • Parent and toddler groups
  • Registered pre-schools, nurseries and out-of-school clubs
  • Youth groups
  • Child Contact Centres
  • Baby banks (providing pre-loved baby clothes and goods to young families)

We are looking for people who are: 

  • In sympathy with the aims and objectives of The Salvation Army
  • Passionate about supporting children and young people
