A little of your time could make a big difference to someone’s life

Our volunteers help and support people with learning disabilities in many different ways, contributing their skills, experiences, energy and enthusiasm. We carefully match their individual strengths and interests to the needs of the people we help.

We help children, young people and adults with learning disabilities, along with their parents and carers, in many different ways:

Children’s and Adult services – everything from theatre and music workshops to a toddler and baby group for children with Down’s syndrome alongside an adults gardening therapy group

Family support – extra help and relief for parents and carers, including specialist support for families with a child with autism spectrum disorder or Down’s syndrome

Befriending scheme – the opportunity for young people and adults to do new things and meet new friends

Theatre and arts groups – especially structured for children and young people or adults who want to do something creative

Training and employment services – including a catering course, work experience and volunteering opportunities

Hydrotherapy – scheduled classes and private sessions for people of all ages in our fully equipped pool

Our community-based activities help people with learning disabilities to do the things they enjoy, make new friends and learn new skills. More
