Children & Family Wellbeing Group Support, Morecambe – Detached

Detached is principally targeted at young people with identified vulnerabilities. It is a method of working with young people which operates without the use of a building and takes place where young people naturally gravitate, e.g., out on the streets, in parks, shopping centres and other public areas where young people naturally meet and gather.

Overview of Service: 

Lancashire’s Children and Family Wellbeing Service offers support to children, young people and families age 0-19+years and their families. The service identifies as early as possible when a child, young person or family needs support.

The volunteer would be required on Thursday evenings between 6pm – 9pm.
