Some people with long term conditions or disabilities can become isolated, are excluded and are not given opportunities to get fully involved in their communities. This project aims to help overcome these barriers.
Without Volunteering I would have just got worse, talking to Community CVS and finding out that there was so much on offer, I am now learning about computers and going to the gym
CVS is friendly and approachable and has helped me to get involved in volunteering and to feel safe and secure doing it.
If you have a long term condition or disability that you feel is limiting your life chances, we can support you to become a volunteer in a whole range of activities which will be tailor made to suit your interests, aspirations and that will fit in with your life and any issues you have.
We offer advice, guidance and support to enable you to join in ordinary everyday opportunities or groups in your local community to help you feel socially involved and to improve your well-being.
Contact Donna Talbot or ring 01254 583957 if you would like to get involved.
