Volunteering job wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi I wondered if anyone can help and have their own business. My son is 21 and is registered disabled from a brain trauma 2 years ago. Although he is getting pip it doesn't help him fill his time in the days up and he is really bored and wants to work. He is not bothered about wages. He feels useless and is becoming less socially active and losing confidence. We all think it's in his best interest to volunteer and help to help him socialise more and if he is settled maybe earn a wage. He is not bothered what the job is as long as he can help and gain experience as well as Independence. Please if anyone has a cafe or a shop or anything that would suitable. He can wal and talk he is capable of helping and has a lovely manner and attitude. He has a small short term memory that only causes problems if he is asked to so many things so we write it down.

Have you thought about local tenants and residents associations, generally most areas have a TARA, and would welcome local volunteers

I can't help with the job, but I really hope you can get someone to give your son a chance at encouraging his confidence.

 

Have you tried charity shops?

 

I'll keep en eye on this post and I hope you can keep in touch and let us know how he goes on.

I was going to suggest Headway as an option too.

 

If your son is looking for work then Remploy would be a good option - they are based on Campo Lane behind the Cathedral. They have open days where you can go to find out more - contact details are on this page

The friends of the botanical gardens and friends of the porter valley are often looking for helpers, so are the friends of the general cemetary.

Has he got the confidence to help raise problems that other disabled people have in his area and have the initiative with assistance on line to put them forward to the council. If so pm me and start a disabled group in his area for Focus Disabled.

If you google Sheffield Volunteering there are many websites form worthwhile organisations looking for volunteers.

 

I hope your son finds something that is worthwhile and fulfilling.
