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.
We are looking for everyday folk who might have a few free hours each week to share an interest with someone with a disability. That hobby you’ve had for years might be just the thing that one of our Members is looking for. You never know – volunteering might actually add some unexpected colour to your life too!
This delightful, chatty man with a good sense of humour is looking for a volunteer to help him with his reading, writing and numbers which he has found difficult since he had a stroke a few years ago.
Uses a wheelchair or two sticks to get around.
Would like the volunteer to go to his home to help him improve his reading especially.
Interests – Football (used to coach a Boy’s team), Chatting/Socializing, Archery and Current Affairs
Timing – Preferably daytime but evening and weekends are okay.
General Location – West Reading
