SuperTroop Expression of Interest Form: New Volunteers

SuperTroop is a new charity based in Edinburgh, offering residential holidays to children and young people with learning disabilities.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for Experienced Helper, Group Leader, and Senior Helper roles - more details on these roles is included below. All volunteers will need to be available for the holiday itself, which is running from 30th June - 7th July 2019.  The holiday is residential and volunteers need to commit to the full week. In addition, there will be planning and training meetings covering approximately 4 weekend dates between now and June, specific dates tbc according to volunteer availability.

We will organise PVG registration, and provide training at a suitable level for all volunteer staff.
