Volunteering with IHC

IHC Friendship Volunteers

The IHC Volunteer Programme is about friendship in the community.  This is what makes being a Volunteer for IHC so unique.

Spend some time doing what you want to do, when you want to do it, with a person with an intellectual disability.

The friendship relationship is one-to-one. This means you spend time with only one person, so you both to get to know each other.

It is not time specific. There is choice. There is flexibility. The emphasis is on being out in the community having fun – together.

By taking a moment to connect with someone with an intellectual disability, you can make a positive change in someone's life and make a new friend in the process.
