Societies | Volunteering: Project Spark

We currently are not taking volunteers for this project. However, please get in touch if you would like to set up a similar project or book in for an informal chat to discuss available roles.

Project Aim

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. These could be: Cooking, Gardening, Arts and Crafts and much more!

Volunteers will be needed to create session plans that would suit different people with a variety of needs. They will need to set up and help deliver the sessions. Volunteers will need to bring lots of energy and encouragement to the sessions to ensure the young people enjoy themselves. Although it may be a small commitment for you, this project will mean a lot to the young people.  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.

Hours per week

1-2 hours


Volunteers on this project will need to complete Safeguarding training and a DBS Check which will be done by the Volunteering Team at SHSU. Information on this will be sent once you are on the project.
