Reception Volunteer - Children's Centre

We are looking to put together a small team of Volunteers to help man the bustling reception desk at our Children’s Centre as of September 2020.

Services at our Children's Centre are slowly beginning to return as restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic ease.  


Are you available for a couple of hours a week on an ongoing basis, to help support the work of our brilliant team? You need to be confident talking to people face to face and, on the phone, making them feel welcome at The Hamlet.


Volunteering with us is an experience that is rewarding in many ways. It is a fantastic opportunity to support our work with children and adults with disabilities and their families, making a difference to their lives. You will learn new skills and make new friends.


Below are a few of the tasks that you will complete in the Volunteer Receptionist role:

  • Answering the phone,
  • Relaying messages to staff members,
  • Welcoming and checking in guests and users,
  • Basic admin tasks such as photocopying


While you don’t need any formal training, we ask that you would be confident in completing the above tasks independently.


Shifts will be broken up into 2-hour sessions, but if you’re able to volunteer for more than one session a day/week, that’s great!


Complete an Expression of Interest form and let us know when you can help!


Please send completed Expression of Interest forms to



The Hamlet is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment

All volunteer positions working with children are subject to satisfactory references and a DBS check.

Note: There is a small admin fee payable to the company that processes our checks by the volunteer.
