Name of Event: Kith & Kids Spring Project Learning Disabilities Volunteer

New training dates have been added for this role, please see the highlighted text below.

Volunteer Role: We are currently looking for lots of energetic and enthusiastic volunteers, to join us on our fantastic fun-filled Spring Social Development Project.

On the project you will be paired with one of our members with a learning disability, where you will support and encourage them in taking part in a wide range of activities led by professional therapists and workshop leaders. Our core activities are swimming, arts & crafts, sports & games and music. Past additional workshops have also included photography, football and cooking and you’ll plan your own exciting outings around London with a fellow volunteer and your Kith & Kids member. So come along and get involved this Easter!
