Why volunteer?

Because volunteering is brilliant! Volunteers are vital to Possability People. Without them, we couldn’t provide services to the high standard that we do.

Volunteers support all aspects of our work, often sharing their lived experience of being a disabled person for the good of the whole organisation.

We have a range of accessible volunteer roles across all of our services and we encourage other organisations to provide accessible volunteer places too. Just because someone is disabled, it doesn’t mean they only want to volunteer for a disability organisation. We believe volunteering should be available on an equal and accessible basis and have an increased number of opportunities for disabled people to volunteer.

Not all our volunteers are disabled people. People come to us for lots of different reasons. Some people want to practice being in a work environment before going for jobs, while others want to make friends and get out of the house, and others want to give something back.

In return, we support them to learn and develop, offer training, and organise social events for some fun. Lots of our volunteers go on to find paid work, while some enjoy their role and stay with us for a long time.

If you would like to find out more about what it’s like to volunteer with Possability People, and how to apply, please contact Emily, who co-ordinates our volunteers.
