Volunteer for the friendliest club in London!
About the opportunity
Can you spare 2 hours a week to work with some of the most friendly, welcoming people you’ll ever meet? If so, then please come and help our volunteers to organise fun activities at our ever-growing club for people with learning disabilities. No previous experience is needed, you just need a caring attitude and sense of fun.
Our club is split into two age groups 14-25 yrs (Juniors Club) and 25 yrs+ (Vets Club). You have a chance to make a real difference to either group by creating new experiences, helping our members to grow in confidence, build friendships and learn new skills. Our specialist club leaders will support and train you and you’ll benefit from working in a very rewarding environment!
What are we looking for?
- You do not need previous experience, just an open mind and a positive attitude towards disability.
- You need to be willing to have fun and commit to The Vets Club or Juniors Club, on at least a fortnightly basis.
- You will need enthusiasm and good communication
Why take part?
The Squad helps to reduce social isolation; helps vulnerable people to grow in confidence and play a part in their wider community.
In this scheme you will no doubt learn new things about yourself and life. You will develop great skills and be part of a rewarding experience. The Vets Club and Juniors Club will support you throughout, offering training, advice and supervision.
