DescriptionThis is a Volunteer Support Programme from the charity Lifetimes that helps individuals with additional support needs find long and short-term volunteering opportunities.

The programme offers one-to-one sessions to support people whose health and wellbeing may benefit from volunteering. Volunteering can be a great route into getting active, creating networks, participating in the community, and a way to use skills, learn new ones, have some fun and find an outlet for creativity. No referral is required. Sessions can be booked directly with Lifetimes. By the end of the session individuals will have:

- Explored what volunteering can offer you and vice-versa
- Decided on a shortlist of suitable volunteering roles
- Contacted those organisations, with the help of the trainer
- All the information you need to apply for a volunteering role
