Situation

The internet, though its interactive capacity can provide amazing opportunies. Even though these opportunities are out there waiting for our learners, many lack confidence, practical experience or the friends and family on which they can practice their skills. The creation of our volunteer hub is another opportunity for us to provide tangible practical support.

Solution

The volunteer hub will enable our volunteers to offer direct support for those learners undergoing our training course and build their confidence. They will be able help with homework, such as email and social networking. Having someone who has a similar disability helping you is a huge confidence builder. There will also be opportunities to build experience for CV’s. Opportunity for meaningful activities, to share knowledge and experiences.
