How can I get involved? (3)
We are looking for volunteers to help with the following clubs that we run in Abingdon:
Tuesday Night Club : (Tuesdays) 6.30pm to 9.30pm
Supporting young people aged 18 - 25 with Learning Difficulties to have a club where they can meet others, socialise and learn new skills. Playing pool, table football, using the music and arts facilities.
Buddies Club: (Wednesdays) 6.30pm to 9.30pm
Supporting young people aged 11 - 18 with Learning Difficulties to have a club where they can meet others, socialise and learn new skills. Playing pool, table football, using the music and arts facilities.
Stuff Club : (Thursdays) 4pm to 7pm
working with young people who are on the Autistic Spectrum aged 11 to 18, supporting them to spend social time together and build relationships (one of the hardest things for them to do) We have done all sorts of things like bowling, jewelry making, ice skating, pool competitions.
We CRB all volunteers, so that we can make sure they are safe to work with children and young people. If you have a criminal record then please discuss this with us at the earliest opportunity, so that we can make sure that you are suitable for this opportunity.
Having a criminal record does not nessarily mean you wont be able to do this sort of volunteering, it does mean that we might have to fill out additional paperwork and disuss the nature of your criminal record openly and honestly with you. This is a confidential disussion.
Share your experiences, upload some photos at anytime during or after your volunteering activity.
