    Hi unfortunately there are not many opportunities available at current times for anything 

    Childcare is also affected with lockdown so it may be worth waiting till the lockdown is eased 

    You would also need a current criminal record check your able to work with children

    Have you had a look on do-it.org @ichika

    Some volunteering schemes have paused due to the pandemic, but there are still opportunities out there. Child care may be a little more difficult right now, but there could still be opportunities out there. What kind of places have you been contacting? 

    Is there any other area of volunteering you'd consider?

    Yes I have looked at the website that you have given me, but I can't find anything, and I have been contacting local places by my area but no where can take anyone one. 

    And I have also considered doing volunteering work at banodors Charity shop.

    Thank you for your help tho it's very much appreciated.
