CHICKS is a national chldren's charity that provides free respite breaks for disadvantaged children from across the UK. Children that live in poverty, suffer abuse, are young carers or have lost parents.
A CHICKS break inspires new confidence and gives these children the chance to have fun, try new things and form positive childhood memories. More than anything, it gives them the chance to just be children. There are three retreats; Cornwall, Devon, and Derbyshire. You will volunteer Monday to Friday, food and accomodation provided.
Our Respite Break Volunteers are a vital part of a team of 6 volunteers and 3 fully trained members of staff. They are positive, enthusiastic role models who spend the week interacting with the children, taking part in activities such as rock climbing and horse riding, whilst encouraging the children to try new things.
This project requires you to have a DBS certificate. For more information about the DBS certificate please click here
