Volunteering offers us all a chance to be valued in our local community. It provides an opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and have fun, and sometimes it can also lead to paid employment.
Mencap in Northern Ireland wants to involve volunteers in a variety of roles within Mencap and with our local groups and also with our volunteering partners who want to involve people with a learning disability in their activities.
We have a number of roles available, and a diverse range of opportunities to take part in. This could be supporting people with a learning disability in a leisure setting or on committees, volunteering with a self-advocacy group, research projects, fundraising or taking part in one of Mencap's campaigns.
Many of these roles can be adapted to suit an individual volunteer's skills and needs - and if there isn't currently a role suitable for you, we will do our best to develop something new.
Volunteer with us!
