Volunteer

Current Volunteer positions.
With all of our volunteer positions reasonable expenses will be covered. Travel expenses paid. Teas/coffees provided. If working all day, lunch is provided. Unfortunately we are unable to cover child care costs.

 

Volunteer Community Project Support Worker
Our Community Project is working with very small groups of 3 to 5 disabled people, supporting them to get out and about to places like museums, exhibitions, cinema, leisure centres, open spaces, etc. The aim is to have fun and build people’s skills and confidence to become more independent. We are seeking volunteers who are available on Weekdays (usually Wednesday), during the daytime, to help our Support Worker accompany small groups out on community trips. This might involve you pushing someone in a wheelchair or giving a supportive arm to someone as they walk along. Our small trips usually fit in with school opening/closing times, so this volunteering opportunity should be suitable for people with childcare responsibilities.
You don’t need previous experience of working with disabled people, as training will be provided. Being friendly, patient and interested in people are the most important qualities. Travel and lunch expenses are provided where appropriate. For more information, please contact WFDRC on 02085341589 or Reception@wfdrc.org.uk
