    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Nourish are a registered charity based in Kirkcaldy who provide support for families who have additional support needs. They do this by running several groups throughout the week. These groups include a group for adults with additional support needs, family support groups and dads' groups; in addition, once a month, Nourish holds a family fun day for families with additional support needs.

    The organisation provides support for adults with, and families who have children with, additional support needs. Groups are run Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Nourish are looking for volunteers who can come along and support in the kitchen so we can provide lunches to their members. This will help with the fundraising as well as providing hot lunches for their members. Food hygiene training would be required which we can support with.
