We welcome and/or have the resources to support:
We’re happy to welcome anyone to volunteer at parkrun (provided they do not have active restrictions on their ability to work with children). Some roles involve using smart phone but we have lots that don’t. We are happy to accommodate people with additional needs/disabilities and discuss how we can adapt roles to suit their skills. Most of our roles would suit someone with limited English provided we have some advance warning so we can produce appropriate support materials or arrange to buddy them up.
Our main constraint is that the volunteering team and the person in charge of the event is different every week. People who particularly benefit from an extended induction and stability across each week might struggle more than people who have the confidence to just jump in. We could probably arrange for the same face to be there for the first two or three weeks, but we don’t have capacity to offer extended support beyond event mornings.
