Volunteer Training and Support

At Time 4 Children, we rely on a dedicated team of trained Volunteer Practitioners to give sessions of support to the children who need it. Our Volunteer Practitioners come from all walks of life and all share our passion for wanting to support  children's emotional well-being - without our Volunteer Practitioners we could not achieve all that we do.

We pride ourselves on providing an exceptionally high standard of training to those who wish to become Volunteer Practitioners for Time 4 Children. Our training is one day a week for twelve weeks, amounting to sixty hours. Trainees who successfully complete the twelve days can then begin a supervised placement, initially supporting one child. After this, we expect our Volunteer Practitioners to commit their time with us for at least one year. Our training does not allow Volunteer Practitioners to practise on their own outside of Time 4 Children.
