Volunteer for a better Brentwood
Inspiration Youth Call has begun to run the “Brentwood Connect” family project in Brentwood, funded by Essex County Council’s Family Innovation Fund.
The project will train community based volunteers to provide peer support to local families who may be facing difficult and challenging circumstances, whilst also connecting local communities and building a stronger Brentwood.
Brentwood Connect is currently recruiting volunteers who may have faced challenges in their family life but have successfully overcome them. Volunteer parents will not only be trained and supported by Inspiration Youth Call staff, but they will also offer invaluable experience to share with families and are able to provide much needed practical support.
Essex County Councillor Ray Gooding, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services said: “Brentwood Connect is an exciting project that really delivers what we wanted the Family Innovations Fund to achieve. The fund has been designed to support ECC’s wider suite of work to deliver the best outcomes for children and families in the county. I am delighted we have been able to work with and provide funding to the voluntary and community sector for these innovative projects across the county.”
Chief Executive of Inspiration Youth Call, Ayo Oshunremi says: “I am incredibly pleased for Inspiration Youth Call to be working with local communities in Brentwood. We are excited to be offering opportunities to local people to gain skills through volunteering and empower them to make a real difference in their community. Brentwood Connect will continue and extend the work we are already doing in Essex, inspiring young people and their families.”
