Football fan? Help this gentleman roar on the Royals!

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.

Roar on the Royals!

This 50 year old man who is in a wheelchair is looking for a volunteer to take him to football matches and maybe to go out to the pub afterwards.

At other times he would like to go with a volunteer on the bus or Readibus into Reading to visit the shops and have a coffee/drink together to give him different sights and sounds to the ones in the home he has to live in due to his care needs.

He will not require any personal care from a volunteer whilst out but he will need pushing in his wheelchair.
