Improving The Lives of Disabled People
Volunteers might want to develop skills confidence and/or employment prospects or simply help the community. We develop people from the community to help others within the community by offering a friendly, supportive and well managed volunteer scheme with extensive opportunities for training and development.
Volunteers help us deliver our services (eg Community Cafe, Disability Information & Advice, Shopmobility and Volunteering & Learning). Volunteer roles and opportunities for training include kitchen assistants and cooks, receptionists, disability rights advisers and form-fillers, Shopmobility assistants, shopping helpers and mobility equipment technicians. Volunteers also fulfill vital support functions such as directors/trustees, ICT, marketing & communications and administration, and we are always keen to hear from people who will volunteer to help with one off fundraising activities and events.
