Volunteering

 

One of the most rewarding tasks you can undertake is to spend time with a person with a disability, helping them to reach their full potential. Some free time, energy and enthusiasm is all you need to make a real difference.

Volunteering offers many benefits and a lot of fun in return for the gift of your time and skills and will allow you to:

  • Make a real difference to someone's life
  • Build confidence and self-esteem
  • Apply your valuable skills and develop new ones
  • Improve your career opportunities
  • Experience different challenges

Don’t be put off from volunteering with us because you feel you don’t have all the necessary skills. What our participants enjoy most from volunteers is the 1:1 interaction time they can provide.

We promise we will make the most of whatever you have to offer. Volunteers are more than welcome to suggest a role they would like to create around their specific skills.
