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 lady is looking for a volunteer to visit her at home to discuss current affairs and have interesting discussions with.
She has a great sense of humour and a keen mind.
She suffers from a neurological disorder which affects her physical abilities.
Her other interests are cookery, art and crafting and quizzes.
She often has asleep during the day and gets tired so an hour a week will be ample time to enjoy this volunteering opportunity and to get to know this interesting lady.
Interested but want to know a little more about what being a volunteer is like? Read about Maria’s volunteering experience HERE
