This is a one year project, based in the Volunteer Centre, Gateshead, offering volunteering taster days to people with a learning disability.
Social support to volunteer will be offered by the project’s volunteer buddies, who are trained and DBS checked.
Informal sessions on ‘What is Volunteering? and ‘Volunteering Skills’ will be offered before starting to plan one-off volunteering opportunities, including gardening, fundraising, and more.
If you know anyone who may be interested in the project or you would like more information you can get in touch on (0191) 4784103.
