Disabled Living welcome volunteers to be involved in many aspects of our work. As a charity, the support of volunteers is crucial to the development of our services. We value whatever time you can offer, from a couple of times a month to once or twice a year. We would be delighted to hear from people who can help with:
- Admin duties
- Our Kidz to Adultz exhibitions – volunteers local to the event venues are especially welcome
- Specific projects that are currently in development
Do you want to be involved in researching Disabled Living’s heritage?
Throughout 2017, Disabled Living will be celebrating 120 years of delivering services. It is anticipated there will be an opportunity for volunteers to be involved with researching the heritage of Disabled Living. This project will not just be about Disabled Living, but also the social history of Manchester, as Disabled Living were at the forefront of delivering a wide range of charitable services throughout Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales.
