Term: Up to 12 months
Reporting to: Community Engagement Coordinator

 

The Alice Ruggles Trust is putting an end to stalking by raising awareness of this horrific crime amongst young people.

 

We have developed an assembly about stalking and healthy relationships for secondary schools and we are looking for volunteers to deliver this in schools across County Durham and Darlington in association with Durham Constabulary.

 

If you consider yourself to be an outgoing and engaging person, this is a great opportunity to be a part of a team committed to children and young people’s safeguarding.

 

We would ask you to attend an initial chat to check that you are suitable for the role and a short training session in advance of delivering assemblies to make sure that you are comfortable with the material. You will also need to participate in an enhanced DBS check, but this will be managed by the Trust.

 

Access to a car is an advantage, but not essential. Previous facilitation experience is also desirable, but passion and enthusiasm are most important. Travel costs will be covered up to a certain amount.
