Opportunity: Volunteer Mentor on Autism Employability Project

We are looking for some new volunteers to join in our Employment & Life Skills Project (ELSP) and help adults with learning disabilities and/or autism to access further education, work experience and visits to mainstream community opportunities. ELSP takes place on a Monday and a Friday from 10am to 3pm, term-time.

Kith & Kids are looking for volunteers to commit to the project on a regular basis in order to fully benefit the members that take part in it. Through regular support and meetings, members and volunteers develop greater trust, skills and confidence together. Please note that the minimum age to volunteer with the ELSP group(s) is 20 years old.


Opportunity: Volunteer Mentor

As a volunteer mentor you will support young adults with autism and/or a learning disability to improve various skills including numeracy, literacy and IT skills.

The project enables these students to develop skills for work and independent living. This mentoring role is a crucial one as it supports us to better individualise the curriculum to fully meet individual needs.

This is a real ‘hands on’ opportunity to make a difference to someone’s life. You will get the opportunity to gain experience in working with young people with a learning disability.


Opportunity: Weekend Club Autism Support Volunteer

Keep a note in your diary for our upcoming training opportunities for our weekend club, supporting children and young adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. You’ll be supporting them to take part in fun and challenging activities like sports & games, arts & crafts, drama and outings into London.
