The group runs on a Wednesday evening in Saltford with very occasional Saturday Day Trips. This group runs during term time only.

The ideal candidates will be confident in working with groups and individuals to provide fun, inclusive activities that support young people to achieve positive outcomes, work toward aspirations and transition to adulthood. WECIL is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of children and young people and expects its staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
