Enjoy crafts and music? Fancy some trips out? This could be for you!

Befriending / Visiting volunteer needed for ENRYCH Berkshire

Our volunteers support and enable people with a physical disability to take up, or return to, a hobby, interest, sporting activity or learning opportunity which they cannot do without some help or support. This support is mainly about giving confidence, understanding and emotional support to bring colour to our members’ lives

Craft, music and trips out, interested? Read on…

One of our clients would love someone to do crafts with her.  She would especially love to learn calligraphy.

She would also enjoy singing and playing guitar with  someone and would like to improve her piano playing skills with the help of a volunteer.

When her physical disabilities allow she would like to go:

  • to concerts
  • to galleries
  • to museums
  • shopping for fun
  • trips out in the volunteers car

This is a great volunteering opportunity for someone who is happy to share a variety of activities and interests with someone else.
