Across Reach, local people generously share their time, skills and knowledge through volunteering, team-building days, fundraising and helping out with office work.

We offer short and long-term involvement opportunities for individuals, companies and groups including Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme students and companies looking for ‘away-day’ challenges.

We also run volunteer training courses for adults with learning disabilities. This area of work will be developed as funding is secured.

Why is community involvement so vital?

  • Local people bring an amazing range of skills and life experiences which enables us to offer genuinely personalised support that is varied and challenging, click here to read personal stories from our clients and volunteers.
  • Each client can be more fully supported to participate and engage in activities at their own pace.
  • For adults with learning disabilities, making connections with people apart from family and carers can  really help boost confidence and self-esteem.
  • Getting to know adults with learning disabilities as individuals helps promote greater understanding of living with a learning disability.
