Person Centred Planning support volunteer

halow supports young adults aged 16+ with a learning disability to live independent lives and become more involved in their local community.

Description of the Role: 
Person Centred Planning is a pivotal part of the Building Futures programme and underpins everything that we do by enabling the young people to have a voice, learn about themselves and explore their own ideas; whilst encouraging them to make their own choices for their future and achieve their goals. A fantastic and fulfilling session to be a part of!
We need your help in Year C to support individuals with their reading and writing skills so that they can access the programme effectively, as well as chatting to the young people on a deeper level to help them unlock some new ideas.

About us

The halow project is a growing community-based charity, situated in Guildford, Surrey. We support young people, aged 16+, with a learning disability on their journey into adult life.

The young people we work with want the opportunity to:

  • Build relationships
  • Become part of the community
  • Find meaningful employment

We believe that the young people we support have the right to be part of and respected in their communities and are entitled to a life they choose in ways which best suit them. halow is committed to developing creative opportunities and removing social barriers.
