Volunteering at Pinpoint Cambridgeshire
We have lots of opportunities for volunteering at Pinpoint Cambridgeshire and a loyal team of volunteers who give their time and energy in a variety of ways.
Whether you have an hour to spare or more, your time can make a very big difference to the work we do for other families. We’d love to welcome you to our team.
We love it because ...
“It’s a chance to support those following in my footsteps…. I know how difficult our journey has been at times and knowing I can make it easier for other families makes it feel very worthwhile. The Pinpoint team are all very supportive and friendly.”
“It’s good to be able to enable parents to get the support they need, identify areas where it it is lacking and bring them together to tackle these. The need for professionals to understand that parents have a vital role, are experts on their own children’s needs and to understand the actualities of living with their caring role is vital for them to assess what is realistic and needed.”
“Pinpoint is such a valuable organisation. Along with my work, it’s helped give me a purpose, helped me continue to drive through my life and be acknowledged as an individual, with something to say – not just as a parent of a child with profound mental and physical disabilities. I feel I’ve been able to make some changes for the better, not just for my daughter but for other families too. ”
“Volunteering for me has been about being a voice for the voiceless.I have attended a number of meetings where SEND provision has been discussed. My role has been to be the parents’ voice and to remind the professionals that it is not numbers or finances they are dealing with but real people with real needs.”
“I volunteer for Pinpoint because of the support and help they gave me when my son was going through a hard time with his mental health and self-harming- and I decided to give something back. One thing I learnt very quickly with Pinpoint is that parents who are going through a hard time with their children, mental health and self-harming issues often just need someone to listen to them without being judged.”
