Spring Project Learning Disabilities Volunteer.
We are currently looking for lots of energetic and enthusiastic volunteers, to join us on our fantastic fun-filled Spring Social Development Project.
On the project you will be paired with one of our members with a learning disability, where you will support and encourage them in taking part in a wide range of activities led by professional therapists and workshop leaders. Our core activities are swimming, arts & crafts, sports & games and music. Past additional workshops have also included photography, football and cooking and you’ll plan your own exciting outings around London with a fellow volunteer and your Kith & Kids member. So come along and get involved this Easter!
Not only is it a week full of fun and games, for you and our members. You are a vital part in supporting them to develop their social skills in a day to day environment.
Male volunteers especially welcome (we need more)!!
The project runs from 9:30am - 5:30pm Monday 8th – Friday 12th April 2019.
You do not need experience. Full Disability awareness training will be provided before you begin volunteering, the only requirements we ask of you is enthusiasm, energy and to be a bit open-minded.
