Papworth Trust is a leading disability charity. Our vision is a world where disabled people are seen for what they can do, and our mission is for disabled people to have equality, choice and independence.
Our day in centre in Basildon offers day centre support to adults living with learning disabilities. The Basildon centre provides daily activities, including gardening, cooking, arts and crafts, health walks and gym sessions. Our services are always working to achieve our mission of ensuring people living with disabilities are seen what they can do!
In Essex, we also offer have our Home Improvement Agency (HIA) which aims to help people adapt their home to support them in living independently. They offer a home adaptations, handyperson and gardening service.
Our centres are looking for groups of volunteers from companies or organisations to join us for a day of volunteering fun! A volunteer coordinator will be on site to help support your group and you will be supervised and guided by the centre manager on your group activity.
Depending on the needs of the centre, your team maybe involved in a variety tasks from painting and gardening to drawing on your professional skills in delivering CV workshops, money and budgetting sessions or providing community safety advice.
Whatever the task, all we ask that volunteers are keen to get involved and try new activities. You will need to have great team spirit and work with your group to get the job done!
