The Outlook Fund
There are opportunities for volunteers to assist in the activities supported by
the Outlook Fund. Participation will be particularly welcome from students and
employees at colleges and companies which have sponsored the Outlook Fund.
Volunteering opportunities through Cambridgeshire County Council
Volunteers wishing to help the Just Us Groups for looked after children, run by Cambridgeshire County Council, will need to have:
- an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau Check
- two character references, one from an employer/tutor
- child protection training, which would be provided by the County Council
Volunteers will need to make a commitment for at least one year to attending monthly meetings, plus helping with the Christmas parties and the annual Award ceremony. The groups are divided into Junior and Senior and meet on mid-week evenings at locations around the County .
For anyone interested in volunteering with Just Us groups the best people to contact are either Michelle Dean 01223 703581 or Mary Ogden 01223 703592.
The Outlook Fund works to improve the lives of Cambridgeshire children facing difficulty and disadvantage, with a focus on the more than 400 looked after children.
The Outlook Fund is administered by the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.
