In 2011, Leonard Cheshire Disability and Scope produced a guide focusing on how to involve young disabled people (aged 16-25) into volunteering programs. This was produced in hard copy format and available on request in other formats. The guide was aimed at volunteer involving organizations.
We are currently looking to update this guide. Early indications are that it would be useful to produce a second guide to volunteering for disabled people.
We would like to invite disabled people (those who have volunteered/currently volunteer/have never volunteered), to a focus group meeting on Friday 18th November 2011 from 11am to 3pm (refreshments provided and agreed travel expenses reimbursed) at Scope Head Office at 6 Market Road, London N7 9PW. People’s views on barriers to volunteering and the information and support they feel they need to both start and continue volunteering will be invaluable in helping us with this guide.
We would be grateful if you could promote this focus group to your volunteers/customers. If you have any queries, or would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact Nicolas Clark (Scope) or Anita Maullin (Leonard Cheshire Disability) contact details below.
Many thanks for your assistance and we look forward to seeing you on Friday 18th November, please RSVP (by Wednesday 16th November).
