Residential Holiday volunteers are needed for a charity who run action-packed holidays around the UK for disadvantaged young people during the school holidays.
We seek happy, vibrant, fun-loving and generous people who would like the experience of looking after others for a week and enjoy joining a dynamic team to give everyone the holiday of a life time.
On most of the holidays, half of the participants have disabilities and half are non-disabled with the aim of facilitating the integration of disabled and non-disabled young people. We also arrange holidays for groups with severe multiple disabilities and autism.
We try to provide a range of stimulating activities from canoeing and archery to raft building and ropes courses, along with visits to theme parks, farms and swimming.
The young people are given the opportunity to participate in new and challenging experiences and everyone can take part together, no matter what their ability. Many of the young people involved have no other opportunity of a holiday.
A local charity shop which raises awareness of the issues that matter to disabled people in Walsall town centre has a number of volunteer vacancies. From helping customers, organising window dressings and displays, working on the till and sorting donations and steaming.
You will gain communication skills, work as part of a team and gain retail experience. This is also a great way to boost your skills, increase your confidence and improve your CV.
