Harpenden Child Contact Centre (HCCC) - Joint Co-ordinator Vacancy

Published:

Harpenden Child Contact Centre  is a neutral meeting place, where children of separated parents may enjoy contact with one or both parents, and sometimes with other family members, in a comfortable, friendly and safe environment. 

In the UK over a million children would not be able to see one or both of their parents without the help of others. This is where HCCC comes in.

We work twice each month with up to a dozen families to ensure that children who would otherwise not be able to visit their non-residential parent have contact with them.  We have four teams of volunteers, so each team runs the Centre every eight weeks.

The Coordinator is a volunteer position whose role is to assess families who want to use our services and together determine whether HCCC is right for them.  The coordinator also provides support and direction to our volunteers who make the day to day running of the centre possible.  The coordinator serves as an important point of contact with parents should any issues arise and liaises directly with the HCCC Board of Trustees.

You would be one of two coordinators, replacing a coordinator who is retiring from the post, (he’s still volunteering).  Typically, coordinators will work a three month on three month off rota, spend 4 hours on the second and fourth Saturday of each month at the Centre, and dedicate approximately 8 hours a fortnight attending to centre business.

If you think this might be right for you, we’d be thrilled to hear from you.  Please contact the coordinator on 07842 167767 or [email protected].
