About the opportunity
The Springfield Project offers a number of activities for adults or families with children. Most of these activities include taking a register of details of those who come. The role may also involve explaining the activity to them.
This is ideal for someone wanting experience of reception for a short amount of time - many of the activities only require someone to be on shift for an hour. The role plays an important part in making people feel welcome to the activities.
The activities are linked to the Neighbour Scheme, an exciting new project which brings local people together in activities to promote wellbeing. We are working with 6 local GP practices who refer people into our Neighbour Scheme services
About The Springfield Project
The Springfield Project is a Birmingham-based charity with a passion for our local community. We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming space in which people from diverse backgrounds can meet and receive support.
The Project developed from St Christopher's Church's commitment to supporting families in the local area and sharing God's love in our community.
We work in partnership with Birmingham City Council to deliver children's centre services providing activities and support for families with children under 5.
We run the Neighbour Scheme, a social prescription project between local GPs and the Springfield Project, working to reduce isolation and improve the mental wellbeing of adults referred by their GP or self-referred.
What are they looking for?
We are looking for friendly people who have good organisational skills.
The ability to speak community languages (Urdu, Mirpuri, Bengali, Punjabi, Hindi, Arabic, Romanian) is desirable but not required.
