The Lend and Play Toy Library based in Woodley is a registered charity which provides low cost loans of toys, games and play equipment to families, child minders, carers and children’s groups across the area. Parents become members first (for a £10 annual fee) and then they can hire a number of toys for a three week period. The toy library also runs a party hire service offering larger play equipment suitable for birthday parties, weddings and events. A new Saturday toy library volunteer is required to help check, clean and process the party-hire toys and to use the database to book toys in and out on a minimum of two Saturdays per month from 10am-12pm. They are also looking for new committee members to join their committee.

Are you a parent or a grandparent? - Do you have 2-3 hours a week to visit and support a young family in the Wokingham Borough? Home-Start Wokingham District volunteers visit families at home, supporting parents in situations such as isolation, illness, multiple births, disability or who are just finding parenting a struggle. They provide non-judgemental practical and emotional support and help build the families confidence aad ability to cope.

ASD Family Help provides information, advice and signposting for people affected by autism and their families/carers. They are looking to take on a Support Volunteer, to help run their coffee morning on a Monday morning and a volunteer to help with organising social events after school or on a Saturday for children/young people with autism. 
As well as these hands on roles, they are very keen for more help on their committee from a volunteer who could be a general committee member and possibly look at becoming Chairperson. Every charity has a board of Trustees, who are responsible for the way the charity is run. Please contact us for more details.
