Our Hampshire Youth Project runs on Saturday afternoons, and enables young people with physical and/or mild - moderate learning disabilities aged 13-25 years to have a social life, like their peers, without their parents and carers. Through our activities programme we aim to build on young people\'s confidence, self-esteem, independence and social skills. Volunteers support, befriend and encourage the young people by taking a full and active part in the activities.  Example of activities include:- Flip Out, Skiing, cinema trips plus supporting the young people on volunteering and work experience opportunities.

Activities are all done in group sessions so it's fun and sociable.

  • You will need a calm and patient manner
  • Reliable, enthusiastic and motivated
  • Happy to undertake an enhanced DBS check (previously known as CRB check)
  • Willing to help others and get involved
  • A flexible approach to your volunteering to support the needs of the organisation
