University is a big, exciting place. But life isn’t always easy. We’re here to give you support when you need us, care about the things you care about, and fight for you when need someone in your corner. Our job is to make sure you feel supported every day.
We live by four promises. Four reasons our cafes, bars, shops and gym feel different to those elsewhere: we put every penny of profit back into your community, we’re always better value than the high-street, we’re at the centre of your campus community, and we choose planet over profit.
We need volunteers who can support help our members (young adults with autism and/or learning disabilities) to have lots of fun and challenge themselves in a host of activities throughout the year!Kith & Kids' aim is to empower our members and their families to develop new skills, gain greater confidence and overcome social exclusion.We have an activity to suit the interest and availability…
Join us at our boutique charity shop and support our friendly service users who have autism or a learning disability as they build their work experience and social skills. You’ll be supporting our members with all aspects of working in the shop in order for them to build well-rounded skills within the work place.
We encourage a minimum commitment of 4 hours at a time, however the more time you spend with our members the more you get to know them and are able to better support them.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We are following a number of safety measures when meeting service-users & volunteers. Taking temperature checks on arrival, asking a number of Covid-related questions before entry, wearing face masks where necessary, suggesting for volunteers to take a lateral flow test before attending an activity. These measures are regularly reviewed.
