What we do
Equal Futures works to improve social inclusion for adults with learning disabilities or autism. We match each person with a volunteer who shares their interests. The initial focus is on befriending and identifying activities to do in community settings; ideally welcoming places where friendships can be made. We also organise our own events and activities so that individuals, volunteers, and families can meet together.
To build inclusive communities through matching volunteers with people with a learning disability. This will be achieved by building robust partnerships with statutory and third sector bodies to reach out to individuals who are lonely or socially isolated. A key to success in the role is having an imaginative and thoughtful approach to finding volunteers who can make an extraordinary impact on people’s lives. The successful candidate will have opportunities to shape and develop the project to make a positive and sustainable difference.
Closing date: 14th June.
