Improving The Lives of Disabled People
We have had to adapt and curtail most of our services in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
All face to face activities are suspended until further notice.
You can find advice and information about our adapted services on our home page here.
We anticipate that the Coronavirus will strain our ability to continue to provide even these limited services, which means that we may find that we need further volunteers who can assist on a remote working basis. The situation is evolving daily and we don’t have any specific requirement as yet. If you believe you may be able and willing to help then please do give us an expression of interest either by email or by completing the contact form. Please do not use the telephone for this purpose in order to make it more available to the people who need our support.
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.
