Members Seeking Volunteers

Members Looking for Volunteers! Can You Make a Difference?

Our volunteers support and enable people with a physical disability to take up, or return to, a hobby, interest, sporting activity or learning opportunity which they cannot do without some help or support. This support is mainly about giving confidence, understanding and emotional support to bring colour to our members’ lives.  We are also always looking for volunteers with their own cars to aid various activities with members. Contact us to find out more (contact details at the bottom of the page).
