The Supported Volunteering Project
Supporting adults with a learning disability to volunteer in their local community
“I look forward to meeting up with
my friends and having a chat at work.’’
“I really enjoy volunteering here. I look after
one of the members who needs support
to do activities.”
“My conservation volunteering can be
hard work, but I really enjoy the
physical side, it keeps me fit!”
“I really enjoy coming here and working
with the ladies in the kitchen.
Volunteering keeps me busy during the week.”
“I enjoy volunteering, I like to help other
people and it keeps me busy. I have
also become more confident.”
Be part of a team
“I just love being with people
and I like to be useful! All the staff
are really nice here and I like to socialise”.
We understand that people with a learning disability want to volunteer just like everyone else, but sometimes need a bit of extra help to get started.
We also know that everyone has different abilities and needs, so we make sure we treat people as an individual and support each person in a way that best suits them.
There are lots of good things about volunteering.
