We are looking for some new volunteers to join in 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.  ELSP takes place on a Monday and a Friday from 10am to 3pm, term-time.

Volunteers will act as a mentor to the group members on a 1 – 1 basis.  With the supervision of the group coordinator you will be helping members develop a range of life skills in areas that many of us take for granted.  These include English and maths skills, independent living, the use of public transport, social skills and even the sourcing of employment. These skills can be very difficult for the people in these groups 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.

Volunteers must attend at least two training days and a DBS check before taking part. Please follow the training dates below:

Session 1: Please attend 1 out of 5 sessions:

Sunday 17th February from 9:30am - 1:30pm

or

Saturday 23rd February from 9:30am - 1:30pm

or

Wednesday 6th March from 6:30pm – 10pm

or

Sunday 10th March from 9:30am – 1:30pm

or

Tuesday 19th March from 6:30pm – 10pm

Session 2: Our co-ordinators will arrange a second session with you.

Training takes place at Ermine Road Day Centre N15 6DB.
