THIS PROJECT IS NOW CLOSED
Home and Away is a befriending project for children and young people aged 5-18 years old, with a physical and/or learning disability.
The aim of the project is to enable the children to have fun and become involved in stimulating activities in their home or local community. It helps the children to develop personal and educational skills and social relationships. It also essentially provides respite for the family members.
Volunteers go in pairs to visit their matched child or young person for 2-3 hours each week. We have load of ideas for things to do and places to visit. Enjoy the cinema, swimming, shopping, football, McDonalds – the only limitations are your imagination! As a volunteer you will make a big difference to the child and their family whilst enjoying yourself! All that is needed is commitment and a great sense of humour.
