Work with us and make a difference
Working with KCA means that every day will be different and you will be part of a team providing support to society’s most vulnerable children and young people. You will have the privilege to be part of their joys, triumphs, failures, frustrations, sadness and laughter. However, most of all you will be there to provide the right support to make a life, a life worth living, with access to everything life has to offer, just like everyone else.
Come and work with us if you share our values and passion for supporting children and young people with learning disabilities, and their families receive services that respond to what they want, and are respectful to them, shaped by them, and meet their needs
We are interested in people who share our values and passion for enabling greater opportunities for children with learning disabilities and their families throughout their lives.
We are looking for sessional workers who can work on our after school club, evening and weekend activities and on our holiday play schemes, in our youth settings and also part of our Outreach service.
We are particularly looking for workers who have local knowledge and availability in Harrow, early mornings (before school), evenings (after school), on Saturday, on Sunday and during school holidays. We are looking for people who can work independently providing 1:1 care and meaningful activities in the home and in accessing local community facilities.
We offer continuing opportunities for learning and development together with regular supervision and support.
Volunteering offers enormous personal satisfaction to those with a little spare time and the desire to use their experience to the benefit of others. It can even be a life-changing experience.
Did you know that many of our volunteers end up working for us?
By volunteering you have the chance to do something you may have always wanted to do, to learn new skills, make new friends and have fun. It increases your self-esteem and confidence, and can be a way of gaining work experience.
We welcome people from all backgrounds and age groups who have a range of skills and life experiences to offer.
Amar, is one of our volunteers, here what he has to say about volunteering at KCA:
“I started to volunteer receptionist with KCA in May 2017, during my time with Kids Can Achieve, I have made some friends, learnt a lot about different special educational needs & disabilities, and have been able to share my experience having Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and I have also had the chance to improve my personal skills in serving the parents/carers in any way possible.
If you live in Harrow or in the surrounding areas and want to work with Children / Young People with special educational needs and disabilities, Kids Can Achieve is a great place to volunteer, learn about different special educational needs & disabilities and to improve your own personal skills.”
