We are looking for some new volunteers to join in with our Employment & Life Skills Project (ELSP) and help adults with learning disabilities and/or autism to access further education, work experience and visits to mainstream community opportunities. 

Volunteers will act as a mentor to the members of the group.  You will be helping the group(s) develop a range of life skills, things that many of us take for granted.  These include Maths and English skills, independent living, the use of public transport, social skills and even the sourcing of employment.  For the people in these groups, these things can be very difficult to develop and achieve without regular support.  

Through regular support and meetings, members and volunteers develop greater trust, skills and confidence together.  Please note that the minimum age to volunteer with the ELSP group(s) is 20 years old.  ELSP takes place on a Monday and a Friday from 10am to 3pm, term-time.

In order to get involved in this project please come to our training sessions (we ask you to come along to two sessions):

Session 1: (Please choose one of three dates)
Saturday 23rd September, 10.00am to 12.30pm
