The Fundraiser also works closely with the Steering Group/National Council Finance Officer to ensure all raised funds are managed, spent and reported on accordingly.



The fundraiser is responsible for coming up with ideas for fundraising projects and organise and oversee implementation of the event, initiative or application. It should also be remembered that fundraising is something that every member can get involved in to support activity, especially athletes and families.



Fundraising for charitable activity usually requires an understanding of what you can and can’t do, so we’ve created some supporting documents to provide further advice and support in this role, which can be found on our website at www.specialolympicsgb.org.uk/resources.



The main responsibilities of the fundraiser include:



Taking direction from the Steering Group/National Council they are part of/Playing an active role on the Steering Group/National Council/Organising and helping with traditional fundraising activities such as sponsored or promotional events, or requesting donations/Applying for Grant funding in conjunction with Special Olympics GB guidelines, available on our website/Developing local corporate support in conjunction with Special Olympics GB guidelines, available on our website /Developing new fundraising ideas and events/Reading understanding and implementing the fundraising guidance provided on our website/Engaging with Special Olympics GB National Office where required for further advice or support/Adhering to national fundraising guidelines, including General Data Protection Regulations

This role does not require completion of a Disclosure and Barring Service check, though the candidate may be required to provide a reference if requested by Special Olympics GB National Office or the Steering Group/National Council.



This is a voluntary, unpaid role. Accredited Programmes or Special Olympics GB do not usually pay for volunteer travel expenses, though this may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

By being a presence on campus on an Asylum club night, University Angels can help the existing teams at Asylum and respond to students who are in need of additional support on account of intoxication. University Angels can help by speaking with students, keeping them safe as far as possible and also, where necessary, escorting them to a designated “Safe Space”.



 



A University Angel can provide a friendly face to someone who perhaps has been turned away from Asylum because they are too drunk to stay. The Angels are then able to stay with the student and keep them safe until they are able to make their way home.



 



The role may include escorting the student to a bus stop and waiting with them or arranging alternative transport for the student to get home.



 



Angels will:



 




  • Walk the campus in hi-vis jackets, ready to help vulnerable students

Would you be interested in adding that little extra to your CV?



 



Hull Libraries runs a Code Club, part of a nationwide network of volunteer-led clubs for children aged 9-11 years.



 



Our club runs for 2 hours on a Thursday evening, school term time, at Hull Central Library.



 



How often you are needed depends on how many volunteers we have. Volunteer as regularly as you wish.



 



We will be there to support you, and provide all the materials you’ll need to help get children excited about digital making.



 

Location

Hull Central Library

What kind of support/supervision will you receive?

Full Training wil be given

Personal qualities and requirements

Code Club is nationally ran charity that encourages children to develop skills in Scratch, CSS & HTML and Python. Have a look at the Code Club website: https://www.codeclub.org.uk/



 



It doesn’t matter so much if you don’t have experience of coding as Code Club provide projects that children can attempt at their own pace. The idea is meant to be one project per session but I just let them manage it as they like – we’re a less structured environment. I encourage parents to participate with their children as well, with computing skills becoming more prevalent in the school curriculum I felt this might come in handy!



 



The site explains how it all works and shows the programmes used. I had only done some basic programming twenty years ago so I’ve taught myself using the Code Club materials (and even then I’m a bit sketchy). Quite often it’s about taking the children through the problem and helping them break it down – they often have the solution. Our aim is to allow children to enjoy coding and digital creativity, we help them to recognise the problem and work through to a solution.



 

Work-ready skills you will learn or develop

  • Organising resources and prior awareness of the projects the children are working on.

  • Have the patience, enthusiasm and interpersonal skills to work with a group of up to 10 children

  • Help children gain skills in computational thinking, problem solving, planning, designing, collaboration and inventive thinking



Develop your own knowledge of programming –

Availability

The club runs every Thursday during term time. We begin at 5:30 to start up all the PCs and make sure the print outs are ready, children and parents arrive at 6 (ish) and we finish at 7:15, but for the last quarter of an hour I often let them explore the finer details of other block programming uploaded onto Scratch (see projects on the Code Club site).

You will inspire and interact with our visitors while they are in the Lighthouse by bringing the story of Spurn to life through talking to them and sharing knowledge about the history and changing landscape that is Spurn today.



You will move around the floors of the Lighthouse and be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have and monitor numbers. Part of this role will be to collect entrance fees so you must be happy with handling money and welcoming visitors.



Making sure visitors are well informed about potential hazards of tides and weather are also a key part of this role, plus keeping the Lighthouse free any of litter that could be a fire hazard.



Volunteers will be required to attend a formal induction and essential training prior to their stay and once volunteering will be expected to commit to at least 1 week to access the free accommodation. We anticipate a closing date of August 11th for applications to this opportunity.

{places_amount}
Tasks

People who have dementia may experience a wide range of symptoms.  These include memory loss (including not recognising close family members), difficulty communicating, confusion and in some cases, agitation and aggression.  These symptoms usually get gradually worse and may last for years and, in most cases, cannot be treated.



 



The family and carers of people with dementia often find the experience physically exhausting, and often have to deal with complicated feelings and emotions.



 



Dementia support volunteers provide support for people suffering from dementia.  This will include providing support to enable their carer to take time out from their caring role.   Due to the vulnerability of people with dementia, and the confusion many experience, dementia support volunteers will regularly work with the same family for a period of time, to allow them to develop strong and  trusting relationships with the service users.



 



Responsibilities



•           Visit people with dementia in their own homes, and stay with them whilst their carers go out



•           Offer companionship and support to the person with dementia and their carers



•           Arrange appropriate activities for the person with dementia



•           Help with making memory boxes or recording/writing down memories or reminiscences



•           With support and training, provide basic therapies such as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy



•           Identify any immediate difficulties which could be referred on to the appropriate service for help and support



•           Report any worries or problems to the Volunteer Coordinator and/or Volunteer Buddy



•           Complete routine administration records after contact and within set timescales.

Number of volunteer places available
{places_amount}
Tasks

Mencap is the voice of learning disability. Everything we do is about valuing and supporting people with a learning disability, and their families and carers. Hull Advocacy has recently started to deliver advocacy services for adults with a learning disability. Advocacy support should focus on empowering an individual to take as much choice and control in their situation as possible. Whilst the volunteer advocate role can be fairly long term (between 6 and 12 months) it should always strive not to encourage dependency on the support and empower someone towards independence. Part of the service we would like to provide is to facilitate long term advocacy partnerships between those who require support and volunteer advocates. We need volunteer advocates to help support issues people might be facing in their life, each of which may be preventing them from living their life as fully as possible and with the maximum choice and control possible. The volunteer advocate would be matched with a person requiring support and be supported to develop a partnership with that person. Volunteers need to be 18 years or over. This role is in office hours, Monday to Fridays. They will receive training from the advocacy service and ongoing support and supervision. We hope that the role would be as rewarding to the volunteer as it potentially can be for the person accessing the service. An enhanced CRB will be required for this opportunity. If you are interested please contact the volunteer team.

Location

Volunteering takes place at locations in and around Hull

What kind of support/supervision will you receive?

Volunteers will be supported by the Mencap team and receive training and an induction. Travel expenses paid but must be agreed in advance.

Personal qualities and requirements

Volunteers are required to have the following skills and qualities: -Commitment to the aims and values of Mencap -Reliability -Ability to relate to and empathise with people and their aspirations -Commitment to empowering those you support to work towards their goals -Good interpersonal and communication skills -Ability to be non-judgmental, self-aware, patient, understanding and flexible -Ability to keep clear, accurate and timely records of contacts

Work-ready skills you will learn or develop

Volunteers will gain experience working with people with learning disabilities and develop communication skills.

Availability

Volunteers are required to commit to at least two hours a week for 6-12 months. As consistency is very important for the client group, students must be able to volunteer outside term-time if they take on this role.

We know it’s important that young people have access to information about cancer. Seven out of ten 12-19 year olds in the UK know someone who has, or has had cancer. The same number says they wouldn’t know what to say to a friend with cancer.



 



By giving them information they want and need, we can equip them with facts to make informed lifestyle choices and help shed taboos about cancer. We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.

If you are ‘techy’ already then the training for the sound recording role for example should be fine - but probably the best thing for anyone interested in any aspect of the work we do, would be to visit us on a Thursday evening.
