Volunteering for Reading Mencap

Would you like to make a difference to people with learning disabilities and autism in your community?

Then why not join our volunteering scheme for a few hours each week or month.

We run a variety of clubs and events for children and adults of all ages which depend on volunteers for their existence and we need general help in the office to run the society too. We will give you:

  • Training in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and disability
  • Support to see how you are getting on or if you want a change of activity
  • Recognition with a certificate when you are trained and experienced

All Mencap volunteers will be CRB checked.

Telephone: 0118 9662518 or mail 9.30–1.30 Mon to Fri.
