Volunteer Involving Organisations
We are very keen to hear from you if would like more information or training around recruiting volunteers with additional support needs.
How can diversity help your organisation?
If there is a wide range of people delivering your service the service becomes a lot more accessible to more people.
Different people from different backgrounds and with varying experiences have different ways of doing things and seeing the world. Every organisation can benefit from being open to this range of experience in its staff and volunteers. It can improve the services provided when people see things from a different perspective.
Choice offers information around good practice, awareness raising sessions and advice on how to make your volunteer roles more accessible and encourage equality and diversity in your organisation.
The Choice Project also offers practical help by providing trained support assistants to accompany volunteers on their placements.
The Choice project will provide training to your existing volunteers to enable them to facilitate volunteers with additional support needs.
