FitzRoy volunteers make an enormous difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities. Their time, skills and enthusiasm bring so much to the people we support and really do change lives for the better. Becoming a volunteer brings huge personal rewards!
What our volunteers say
"The thing that captured the spirit of Hidden Gardens best of all was the wonderful garden created by the volunteer gardener at Donec Mews for the pleasure of its residents. That felt like a very special place and so were the people working there."
"Volunteering has helped me regain my confidence and given me a greater understanding of people with learning disabilities. I want to carry on developing my skills by working as a volunteer here, and continue to gain a better understanding of the people I support."
Bernie, Volunteer at a Day and Community Service
