A pioneering programme which supports women who have experienced or are at risk of repeat removals of children from their care is hoping to help more women after funding has been secured to extend the scheme.

The current Pause programme was due to end in June but thanks to the funding from Doncaster Council it will now be mainstreamed to help support more women.

Over 100 people who devote their spare time to helping some of Doncaster’s most vulnerable children and young people are to be thanked as part of national Volunteers’ Week.

The volunteers each commit a minimum of an hour a week to one of five volunteering projects at the Doncaster Children’s Services Trust.

Volunteers’ Week, which runs from Saturday 1 June to Friday 7, is an opportunity to say thank you to all those people who give of their time to help others, as well as being a chance for others to think about joining a scheme.

“Good engagement skills I thought – empathy, non-judgemental and sensitive. Good work.”
