Help people with learning disabilities gain employability skills

People with learning disabilities have a right to work, yet only 6% of adults with a learning disability known to their local authority in England are in paid employment.  (NHS Digital 2018).

We run Steps into Employment, a programme to prepare adults with learning disabilities for the world of work. We help people identify the skills needed for different jobs, learn how to search and apply for jobs, understand expected behaviours in the workplace, and learn about interview skills.

We need volunteers to join our classes on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at our training site in Brixton - or on Thursdays at our site in Clapham Junction. You’ll engage with our students, support them on their learning journeys and help our Job Coach deliver the sessions.

 

About us

Share is a registered charity and a centre for training and wellbeing. We provide a range of programmes helping adults with learning disabilities, autism and other support needs become more happy, healthy and independent. Our vision is a world where disabled people are fully included in society, living the life they choose.

Time commitment

We're looking for someone who can commit to a minimum of 1 day per week; either on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays - 10am to 4pm... or more if you have time!
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We constantly monitor the covid-19 guidelines and update our policies accordingly. We encourage those who can to wear masks in our buildings, there are sanitising stations throughout our buildings, and all staff and volunteers are required to test regularly.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
