Activity Support Assistant

To support Activity leaders and Support Mentors in the delivery of sessions to adults with ASD and/or LD.

Volunteers will be required to help set up resources for the session and to support adults to engage. Support may include scribing for a person who has difficulty with writing, reading information for them or helping them to understand and complete a task.
