We hold social clubs for people with learning disabilities where they can come and meet friends socialise and have fun. Volunteers are wanted to help and join in with a wide range of activities for our members. Activities can include all sporting games, table top puzzles, singing, arts and crafts and many more.


You will need to be friendly, enthusiastic, confident, patient and someone who enjoys interating and working with people with learning disabilities. If you have a 'can do' 'lets get stuck in' attitude with a good sense of humour you will fit right in!

Availability Details

At the moment all clubs are fortnightly and are from 7pm until 9pm. It would be helpful if you can help with setting up and/or tidying away at each end of the evening. So it would more likely be 6.45pm until 9.15pm but we are happy to be flexible.
