Paid Positions at Fair Play Barnet

Our support playworkers underpin the one-to-one support provided to disabled children and young people. We recruit, vet and train new support playworkers four times a year. In particular, we always need more workers over the summer to support children and young people at holiday playschemes.

Support playworkers are partnered with a disabled child/young person on a one-to-one basis, and placed in a local club that caters for children of all abilities. The role of the support playworker is to enable the disabled child/young person to access & join in the activities on offer.

We offer an extensive training programme for all staff to enable them to undertake this role as well as supervision and support from an appointed line manager.
