Specialist Inclusion Project - Volunteer Opportunities

What does it do?
The Specialist Inclusion Project (S.I.P) is a project run by Bradford Council that provides and supports others to provide leisure and recreational activities for young people age 8-18 years with a diagnosed disability. Every year we support many volunteers to •    Learn new skills! •    Meet new people- become part of a team! •    Invest in their local community • Improve their university/ college applications and CV •    Volunteering makes you stand out from the crowd 74% of employers would employ someone with volunteering in their CV over someone with none! •    Gain confidence and self esteem

Who is it for?
People over the age of sixteen who have an interest in volunteering and supporting children and young people with Disabilities, to engage in leisure and rec activities. We support volunteers to complete their application to volunteer- You will need a DBS (police check) as we work with some of the most vulnerable young people in the community. The project offers training and support to feel and be a part of the team. Volunteers receive “supervision” this is a one to one meeting with a coordinator to ensure you feel you have the training and support you need or to discuss any issue you may have. We aim to ensure our volunteers feel as valued and appreciated as possible. Volunteers provide an element of support/ fun and excitement to our work we cannot replicate, this make volunteers extremely important to us!
