Parenting Special Children have a growing team of staff, volunteers and sessional practitioners who bring a wide range of skills, knowledge and expertise to the charity.

We are based in Reading and are fortunate to be based in a beautiful Edwardian building which provides office space and a venue for some of the Reading courses and workshops that the charity offer to families.
The majority of our courses and workshops take place during term time which enables PSC to offer job and volunteering opportunities which provide flexibility, especially important as we are a user led charity and have children and young people with special needs.

 

Job Opportunities
We don’t currently have any job opportunities.
Trustee Opportunities

We are looking for individuals who would be interested in helping to guide our work as a Trustee. We are actively seeking people from Black and Asian backgrounds who are currently underrepresented at PSC. We are a user led organisation so value lived experience so would also actively seek someone who is a parent/carer of a child/young person/adult who is neurodiverse or has special educational needs or has extensive experience of working with families.

Volunteering Opportunities

Parenting Special Children really values the time and skills that volunteers give to the charity and we often have new volunteering opportunities. The majority of people who have volunteered with the charity over the years have learnt new skills and have moved to paid work.

We have a number of volunteers who work closely alongside our staff team with administration tasks and on the Helpline. They make an essential contribution to our work with parents/carers.

We also have a number of trained Peer Supporters. Peer Supporters are parent volunteers who support families whilst awaiting an assessment or who have recently received a diagnosis.

We currently have the following volunteering opportunities:

  • Trauma and Attachment Service Peer Supporters – Volunteer Peer Supporters with an understanding of Looked After and/or Adopted Children. Please contact tas@parentingspecialchildren.co.uk
  • Graphic Design and Marketing – Volunteers with experience in graphic design and/or marketing to help us enhance our social media presence. Please contact tess@parentingspecialchildren.co.uk
