The Valued Volunteers scheme provides volunteers to support adults with learning disabilities to take part in the activities of their choice, and be supported with appointments and specific shopping requests.
This is a very rewarding role which is fully supported by the council's induction policies and procedures, with relevant free accredited training and CRB check.
We welcome people from all walks of life, whether you are a student who wants to supplement their academic studies by gaining people skills, someone who is looking for a change of career, maybe this is something you would like to do in your spare time, or you are retired, you will be valued and fully supported in this role.
We are very flexible and ask for whatever time you can give to befriend and mentor an individual or perhaps support activities in a group setting.
Or perhaps you or someone you know has a learning disability, and you would like a volunteer to support you to do the things you want to do. There is an eligibility criteria. For more information please click on the links below, or contact:
