Volunteering opportunities at inspirational project

24 April 2018

Torbay community programme So-Fly is looking for volunteers to help it continue supporting dozens of local families.

One-to-one youth support

The project, which receives funding and support from Sanctuary Housing, needs people to assist in the running of its one-to-one youth service which works with local young people to boost their health and wellbeing, build up employability skills and increase emotional resilience.

Opportunities at Great Parks

There are also opportunities available at Great Parks Community Centre in Paignton, where So-Fly is based. These include admin support and fundraising officers.

“Volunteers play at integral role within So-Fly”

So-Fly’s managing director, Jordan Pierson, said: “I’m passionate about improving the lives and prospects of young Torbay residents and helping them to achieve their goals.

“Volunteers play an integral role within So-Fly and without them we simply wouldn’t be able to operate. I would urge any resident who wants to make a real difference to their local community to come and volunteer with us.”

“The organisation has made such a positive impact”

Lynne Roberts, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, added: “We have provided support and funding to So-Fly for more than five years and the organisation has made such a positive impact on many local young people.

“Jordan is a real inspiration and working with So-Fly is sure to give a boost to any resident’s employability.”
