Would you like to gain experience volunteering with young adults with learning disabilities?

This projects aim is to bring together students from Sheffield Hallam University and young adults with learning disabilities to reduce isolation and learn from each other. Volunteers and participants will have the chance to create sessions at The HUBs covering a variety of topics such as:

- Cooking

- Environmental / gardening

- Arts and crafts

This volunteering role will involve:

  • Creating the session plans that would suit different people with a variety of needs.

  • Be available to set up for the events before the session starts.

  • Bringing lots of energy and encouragement to the sessions to ensure that they young people really enjoy themselves.

Although it may be a small commitment for you, the level of appreciation that the young adults will get is amazing.  A lot of young adults with disabilities find it hard to integrate themselves into the community which is why this project has been set up – you will get so much more from it than you think!
