OPP OF THE DAY: Host, Friends of Chernobyl’s Children Black Country

We need hosts to take a child from Belarus in to their home for 4 weeks throughout the month of June. 
The host will be responsible for the care of the child throughout their stay in the UK and will need to ensure they are transported Monday to Friday to the activity centre so they are able to take part in learning, activities, and health checks/treatment with the other children that they travelled to the UK with.
Hosts don’t need to have a spare room as the children can share a room with the hosts own children as long as they are the same sex, but they will need their own bed.
All of the children we bring to the UK are aged between 7 and 12 years and are from the badly contaminated areas of Belarus as well as being from disadvantaged, poverty stricken families.
Their stay in the UK gives their immune system a well needed break from the radiation that would be found in their food and drink at home as well as the opportunity to develop new skills that will open up wider opportunities for them as they grow in to adulthood.

Where:
The children would stay with you in their home and attend an activity centre in Halesowen Monday-Friday.

When:
4 weeks throughout the month of June.

Commitment:
We aim to bring each child to the UK for 5 consecutive years, however just one year makes a huge difference to the lives of these children.

Expenses:
£150 for essentials while the child is in the UK, any other expenses will need to be agreed by the branch co-ordinator. Expenses paid only in agreement with the branch co-ordinator .

Enhanced DBS check required.

Skills:
Successful enhanced DBS clearance and completed application form.
The children will need patience, time and TLC.
