Skill-based Volunteering is a short term Volunteering opportunity where the emphasis is on achieving a goal.
The relationship is one-to-one. This means you spend time with only one person, so you both to get to know each other and maximize the opportunity to learn from one and other.
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.
There will be opportunities to connect with carers and people with intellectual disabilities online.
It is not time specific. There is choice. There is flexibility. The emphasis is on connecting over shared interests and goals. Volunteers must own or have access to a digital device and have basic skills in using digital platforms.
Full training and guidance will be provided.
