Sensory Activities Support Volunteer

We regularly put on sensory activity sessions for the individuals we support, whether that’s for our tenants or members of the public. We provide a range of activities, from crafts and baking sessions, active and calm sensory sessions, to parties and celebrations and music and exercise sessions. We are looking for volunteers to support or facilitate these sessions, and to help with planning, organising and promoting these activities. We are also keen to hear from you if there are specific activities you’d like to facilitate.

This role supports us to be able to provide a variety of activities to individuals who we support and engage with, on a regular basis and providing a range of options, and so enhancing the lives of local people with or supporting someone with a visual and/or hearing impairment, as well as other disabilities.
