Welcome to working with kids, an ideal reference for anyone who already works with children or for those who are looking to get into this field.

WorkingWithKids.co.uk offers guidance on all aspects of work that involves being with or around children, including:

  • legal issues
  • safety standards
  • analysis of the different jobs available
  • ideas for games and activities with kids
  • tips for qualifying to work with children at different levels
  • voluntary work that you can do with children
  • and much more...

If you think you'd like to help with sports coaching at your local school, did you know you'd have to be CRB checked? Do you know the minimum adult/child ratios for different activities? What kind of first aid qualification might you need? Answers to these questions are provided here.

Do you have the right kind of temperament to work with children? Help on this topic is offered and there's even a questionnaire to help you personally determine whether it's the right career for you. WorkingWithKids.co.uk also features a comprehensive range of jobs and voluntary work that you can do with children - giving details of how to get involved, how to qualify and how to make the best of it once you've made the choice.

From scouts, to church groups, to drama clubs or youth groups - here you'll find ideas and tips that you can use yourself or discuss with other volunteers.

So if you want to become a teacher, a children's nurse, a childminder, set up your own drama group, or simply help out with children in your locality, then check out WorkingWithKids.

We hope you will find this site helpful and please get in touch if you have an issue that you'd like us to address. We also love to hear about your stories and experiences in volunteering (simply follow the link to 'Tell Us Your Story'.)

We really want to help spread the word and if you can help by linking to WorkingWithKids then we really appreciate your help.
