Squirrels. A new adventure in a well known tail.
Squirrels is a completely new provision for 4–5 year olds. There are plenty of reasons to get stuck in, as Squirrels gives young people the chance to:
- Make friends
- Have fun outdoors
- Learn new things
- Earn badges through fun activities
This new programme is currently open in 200 areas. We’ll get in touch when there’s a group near you. Squirrels might not be open in your community just yet, but you can still register your interest in volunteering with Squirrels now.
Will you be our next Squirrels volunteer?
Volunteering’s not just about giving back – the benefits go both ways. All of our activities are run by amazing volunteers. Volunteering lets you try new things, meet new people, and make a difference. We know that volunteering is #GoodForYou because when you volunteer, you’ll:
- Do something good for your community and yourself
- Gain skills for the future
- Spend time with your children or gain experience with young people
- Make friends
- Make memories
Volunteering will keep your body and brain active as you make a huge difference to young people’s lives – helping them develop skills for life and learn a whole lot about themselves along the way.
It doesn’t matter if you want to get involved regularly or help out occasionally – we can find the right fit for you.
Tree, two, one, go!
As the programme grows, we’ll have hundreds of activities for 4 and 5 year olds. There are already plenty of fun Squirrels activities within our activity finder, if you’re looking for something to keep young people occupied. Check out the activities and be inspired to give something new a go.
