Supported Volunteering

Hedleys Horizons

Access to Supported Volunteering

We can provide continued support if you would like to access volunteering opportunities recognising the early work skills that you may have. A volunteering opportunity is sourced close to your home by the Percy Hedley Foundation Employability Project and supported by staff. Over time, support can be withdrawn and oversight provided by a job coach. However, we recognise that you may always need support to continue this meaningful activity.

Aims:

  • Meaningful involvement in long term volunteering placements.
  • Greater social inclusion.
  • A new challenge that will develop new skills.
  • Improved confidence and self-worth.
  • To make a positive contribution to society.
