We are determined to achieve this by changing attitudes, providing services and influencing those who can help us change the lives of people with a learning disability.
Volunteering with Mencap is YOUR opportunity to help us achieve this, whilst having the chance to develop your skills, meet new people and join a passionate and dedicated team.
We support a local gentleman with a learning disability who loves woodwork, and with the support of staff he uses his creativity and talent to make wonderful pieces.
However, he would really benefit from the support of a volunteer with woodwork experience. Someone who was able to pass on tips and techniques, and support with his woodworking.
He’s also interested in the theatre and classical music concerts. We hope that as a Volunteer Sidekick you will help him to enjoy his interests more often, as well as bringing companionship and fun.
You will get to know the gentleman alongside Mencap staff, and we believe having a volunteer sidekick will make a huge difference to his wellbeing and happiness.
This is a flexible volunteering role and will mostly be determined by the people we support. We are also asking that you commit to at least 6 months of volunteering
