opportunity to build up a friendship with another parent who they

We’re interested in hearing from anyone who could spare a minimum of
3 hours per week to support families in the Liverpool area. We’re
looking for people with a sensitive and caring attitude towards
others, reliable, a good listener and a good team player. In return

supervisions will also be offered. For further details please come
