This is our project that supports people who may need some additional help to get into volunteering.
It could be that you have a physical disability, a long term health condition, mental health, offending background, have a learning disability, be long term unemployed or have low confidence and want to get into some kind of volunteering but don't know where to start. This is the project for you. Our advisor Sarah will work with you on what you would like to do and find the right volunteering opportunity to meet your needs. Sarah will give as much or a little support as you need, and may match you up with a mentor to help your journey. Mentors could help you catch the bus to your volunteering or help fill in any paperwork needed for the role. They could even be accompanying you on your volunteering.
If you would like to know more or know someone who would benefit from the project, then get in touch via the form below.
We also work with organisations to remove barriers to get into volunteering, so volunteering organisations are inclusive to all.
While things have been a bit different for the project during the current pandemic and many of our clients have had to pause their volunteering. However, we have still been running our weekly Chatty Wednesdays! Social Group online and have started a new Postcard Pals project, which you can read more about here.
