About the organization:

Hosting Organisation Disability is a disability charity that has been operating for 60 years, born out of the life experience and inspiring vision of one man: Leonard VC. We employ thousands of people and have thousands of volunteers in the UK who work out of nearly 200 services, and we have five international offices serving over 50 countries around the world.

What we do:

• We operate social care services providing support for disabled people in their own home, in facilities we own and run, and in the community.

• We use our skills and knowledge to develop and pilot new, innovative, support services for disabled people with help from corporate, private and charity partners.

• We campaign to change society's responses to disability.

Leonard campaigns to change the way that society thinks about and responds to, disability. We want people to think and act differently to make a positive difference to the lives of disabled people

Who are we looking for?

This call is opened for young people aged between 18 to 30 years from EU programme and partner countries. We are looking for people that have a genuine interest and passion for working with people with disabilities.

There are no professional skills and experience required, however it is recommended that volunteers have an experience in similar sector or providing support in personal life in order to have a realistic idea of working with people with disabilities. As we work with vulnerable adults, the volunteers should be kind, patient and compassionate. We are looking for volunteers with different skills and abilities, such as music, sports, arts and crafts, gardening, etc to bring to our services and encourage them to share those skills and passions with our residents.

Description of Activities:

Our volunteers are placed in various services across the UK. They are actively involved in shaping their EVS experiences and we encourage volunteers to bring their own ideas, skills and passions to share with residents throughout their placements.

The overall aim of the project is to ensure that our activities programmes are diverse, simulating and in line with our organisational goal of providing people with disability the opportunity to live their lives the way they choose – with the support to live independently.

The volunteers will be supporting our activities teams in planning and delivering the activities programme. The volunteers will also be supporting residents and day care users on a one-to-one basis.

Examples of activities:

 running arts and crafts group, playing board games and language games, music groups, organizing theme evenings, intercultural activities, etc.

 organizing and supporting fundraising events

 escorting residents in the community, going to the local college, cinema, performance at theatre, local library, etc.

 running small projects, depending on volunteer's skills and interest and current needs of the service (previous volunteers were involved in sensory garden project, healthy lifestyle, music, movie evenings or organization of other workshops)
