The Family Action volunteer group took part in a recruitment and training session at the Family Action centre in Hampton Hargate.
The charity is looking for people interested in working with troubled families or children with autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Kimberley Bachl, co-ordinator for the troubled families project, said: “This will be a challenging and interesting project where volunteers will be able to build experience of working with children and families, as well as giving something back to disadvantaged families who will really benefit from the project.”
To find out more about volunteering, call Kim or Sally on 01733 893361. Full training and supervision will be given.
