Are you interested in doing some voluntary work? Do you have some additional needs and require a bit of extra support?
Rushcliffe Volunteer Centre has received funding for 2 years to launch a project called Volunteering and Beyond. The project helps those, who for a variety of reasons, find it difficult to engage in community or social activity. They see volunteering as a first step on the road to achieving their potential, but sometimes this first step is too overwhelming for them to take on their own. Through the support of Volunteering and Beyond, we will be able to work more intensively with these volunteers with additional support needs include people with physical and learning disabilities, mental health problems, speakers of other languages, among other groups. We will also look at linking volunteers with 'buddies' who would be recruited through the Volunteer Centre. Together they would carry out the volunteer duties, and training and support will be offered to all volunteers.
Can we help you?
