The core of our work is based on evidence and research based practice and a continued investment in innovation. Our vision is a society where all young people are healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and achieve economic well-being

We are looking to recruit skilled, motivated and committed volunteers to work with our Tuesday Open Access Hub, with young people aged between 7 and 11 years. This role is for term time only.
