How can I help the Palmers Green Youth Provision?
Volunteers will be required for all aspects of the scheme, ranging from providing refreshments to serving on the standing committee. People will be needed to:
- join the rota of Friday afternoon helpers - that might mean running the tuck shop on the Friday while the young people are there, helping to set up and clear up, chat to young people and ensure they are safe when they meet.
- act as mentors - mentors will never be left alone, there will be a second person around in the background, offering hospitality eg tea, hot chocolates, coffee and biscuits.
- run the skills training courses
- facilitate the parents/carers support group.
Training for volunteers
The council will be holding a training day on Saturday 18th January (10am – 4pm). It will be free to attend and lunch will be provided. DBS checks (also free) will be done on the same day.

Other ways you can help
Rev Julie says that for the time being the budget is very limited and is asking the local community to provide some of the resources needed to keep attendees entertained. She's set up an Amazon wishlist, which you can see at www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/1A8J01GIQB8TR.
