It’s Volunteers Week 2019 and we want to say a Big CPotential Thank You to all our wonderful volunteers who give up their time to help in our shops and Centre.
Spending a few hours a week with us is a great way to really make a difference. As Juliette (below) says: “I soon realised that even a little of my time every week goes a long way in helping others.”
Join our volunteer team
Could you help spruce up our garden (and keep fit at the same time)? Or help our children enjoy their lunchtimes? Or are you a dab hand at databases?
If so, we need YOU – do check out our latest volunteering opportunities.
You can learn about how we support disabled children, see how a charity works, meet lots of different people and, in the process, pick up some handy job skills and experience. Whether you’re young and doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award or not so young but with some time to spare we’d love to hear from you.
“I’ve been volunteering at CPotential for about six years. I live near the Centre and wanted to do some voluntary work so this was perfect. I soon realised that even a little of my time every week goes a long way in helping the children.
I come in once a week. I help to feed children who can’t feed themselves, read stories to them to help their visual stimulation and generally support the team, who do an amazing job. But they can always do with an extra pair of hands.
The children constantly amaze me with their determination – and not a day goes by without a smile!”
