Freelance Copywriter (Volunteering)

​Since 2014 I have offered my writing services to those in need in my local area. This has included writing a letter for a Syrian refugee to support his application for a nursery placement for his daughter, supported an individual whose first language was not English in filling out official government forms relating to housing needs. In addition to this I have experience proofreading and editing policies and procedures for two local childminders to ensure that they were up to date and in compliance to any changes in the EYFS. I have also maintained a small business website for a child-minder where I have updated the gallery and content regularly.

Following the Early Years Statutory Framework I would also plan and evaluate activities and signpost parents/carers to relevant external services.
