Volunteer at the College

We have a wonderful group of young people whose learning and independent living skills are enhanced by visits out into our local and wider community.
Do you have one afternoon a week that you would like to offer your help to us? No specific skills are required, just the desire to offer our young people additional opportunities. A DBS would be required.
