Volunteer Mentor (Fostering team)


Could you volunteer to make a real difference to children and young people living in care?

Father Hudson’s Fostering Team, New Routes Fostering, supports children and young people who are looked after by West Midlands Local Authorities.

As a Volunteer Mentor you will befriend young people in care through activities like trip a to library, bowling or a friendly chat for a few hours per month. Hopefully by doing this they will establish a long term friendship where trust is built over time and the child or young person will have the opportunity to try new activities, chat about their day to day life and have fun at the same time.

We are looking for friendly and approachable people with good communication skills who are flexible in approach to the role, committed to the role and are sensitive and empathic about the needs of children and young people in care.
