Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteer Guides needed at our safety centre

Who are we?

SkillZONE is an exciting and innovative safety education centre which opened a year ago. We teach people how to stay safe and to be responsible citizens. The centre boasts a life-size village which provides an excellent learning environment for various realistic situations, such as fire safety.

What we need

New funding to enable all 10 year olds in the county to visit our centre means we require more volunteers. Guides are needed to lead groups on a 2 hour tour around the village scenarios and encourage children to identify various dangers.

You are only required to give a minimum of 2 days per month. To see a tour in action visit skillzone.glosfire.gov.uk

What we offer

Volunteers will receive on-the-job training as well as be offered courses such as First Aid. You will become a highly valued member of the SkillZONE team and be able to use our facilities. We also pay travel expenses and give job references.

To apply

Just visit skillzone.glosfire.gov.uk/volunteer/ to apply. Alternatively phone us on 01452 834150 or pick up an application form from our centre, Tuffley Lane, Gloucester, GL4 0AS.
