Volunteers wanted to help with children and young persons in our area.

Posted: 16/07/2013

Would you like to make a difference to the life of a child or young person with learning disabilities in your area?

Cambridgeshire Mencap is looking for volunteers for its Befriending & Family Support Schemes.

Our Befriending scheme matches volunteers young people with learning disabilities, to enable them to socialise, doing fun things like bowling or going to the cinema. It only takes a few hours of your time and it really does change lives.

Our Family Support scheme provides extra help for parents and carers when and where they need it most by providing a trained volunteer to regularly visit the child or young person and provide practical help to the family.

We think our volunteers are exceptional and you could be too!

We give training and support, but itís the young people who make it all worthwhile. Rob said ďIím so glad I got in touch about volunteering. If youíre thinking about volunteering just do it, youíll never regret it.Ē
