Office duties, such as answering the telephone. At people first I help to support people with learning disabilities. I do this by supporting people who come into the office looking for support. I help with visits out to other day centres and help with completing activities. I also liaise with other members of staff to make sure that people are getting the support that they need.
As a volunteer on a Community Work program via the Jobcentre and a Placement provider (Interserve) I gained valuable experience working with and helping those with learning difficulties and disabilities. In my 4 months working there I help with varies activities and organising training and summer scheme activities. I would recommend some one in my position to take this opportunity to work alongside such friendly and outgoing people.
Each and every day that I worked there was enjoyable. I learnt a lot for the people who had learning disabilities and i feel that this has made me a better person, and I am very grateful of the time that i worked there for. Was very sad to leave them all as we all became great friends
