There is an exciting new opportunity to become a virtual volunteer for Luv2MeetU working with our Virtual Coordinator Kit to run an innovative and comprehensive service for our adults with learning disabilities and /or autism.
Can you run a drama workshop, music event, gaming session or quiz on-line? Or another workshop/event with your own unique skills and interests?
Here at Luv2MeetU, Kit is developing a full and varied programme of virtual events for our club members to access nationwide. They go on round the world tours, sing their hearts out at karaoke and have discussion groups to name but a few! There will also be workshops to provide learning and life skills such as first aid and on-line safety.
Could you give one slot a week or month to run your own virtual activity to provide the people we support with an ever growing rich and varied on-line experience? It is especially important and invaluable to those struggling with anxiety, mobility issues or illness for example. It gives them a chance to still join in a social setting, communicate and to feel part of a community.
You just need to be confident, organised, able to communicate well and be patient and understanding. Some knowledge of adults with learning disabilities and/or autism would be helpful but not essential. To be able to have fun!
As a volunteer you will receive training, free DBS, expenses paid and invaluable experience and skills to add to your CV. You will meet other volunteers and become part of a nation-wide team of volunteers helping our club members to access social events, reach their potential and to feel included, an incredibly rewarding experience.
All our events are designed to be all inclusive as we are working with adults with special needs so a volunteer with a disability requirement should not have an issue. If there was we would accommodate this straight away and work with the volunteer to resolve any issues.
All volunteers would have support from our community coordinator and volunteer coordinator, emergency numbers and details. They would have links to other volunteers to share ideas, experiences, problems.
Luv2meetU is a Community Interest Company (CIC), run by and for people with learning disabilities and or autism. Our main aim is to ensure that everything we do is about providing better opportunities and activities for our club members in response to their needs and wishes.
Luv2MeetU works with adults with learning disabilities and /or autism. We run events and workshops that provide our club members with social activities, new experiences and learning opportunities. Examples of previous events include climbing, bowling, alpaca trekking and a relationship workshop. There is a community coordinator that you would be working with, either helping them on events which would allow greater numbers or running your own event, with a friend maybe, taking a group to the cinema or for a meal out for example. We want to give our adults an enriched and varied life whilst promoting independence, learning and well-being.
We are looking for volunteers to either help our community coordinator on events or run their own events, after training, with the adults that we support. You could sign up with a friend or family member, train together and then take our club members to the cinema, meal out or bowling once a month or how ever often you had time for. Design your own event, liaise with the coordinator who will write it into the next flyer and provide all the details you need. Expenses are paid, you’d be doing something hugely rewarding, giving an invaluable service to the community and enriching your own experiences and CV.
