Children’s oral health educator volunteer.
|Opportunity: Children’s oral health educator volunteer.
We need volunteers who are willing to go along to their local nurseries, schools, childcare settings & organisations that work with young children and their families to deliver the project.
We would really like to target areas of high social deprivation where oral health needs of children are often greater, therefore we are relying on volunteers’ local knowledge to target these areas.
We would like volunteers to get in touch with schools, nurseries and groups to offer to go along and deliver the Brightbites programme.
Support can be provided upon request. All resources to support the volunteer are provided and sent prior to the session, including a PowerPoint presentation, leaflets, stickers, posters, a mouth model, a t-shirt and toothbrush and toothpaste for every child seen.
|Requirements: Confidence to provide an engaging session, no clinical qualifications required
|Location: Local schools. Childcare settings/organisations
|Hours: Monday-Friday daytime generally, can be weekends/school holidays if arranged
