Becoming a volunteer will give you the chance to get involved in your local community, make new friends, gain valuable skills and help us to improve the lives of people with a learning disability.

Volunteering opportunities in Wales are varied, meaningful and interesting, ranging from activities assistants to translators, and buddies to events organisers. Whatever your skills or interests, we will do our best to match you to a role you will find rewarding.
