  • Gardening

  • Pampering
  • Cooking
  • Sports

What our buddies do

Our buddies help provide extra resources for our dedicated staff. With their help the people we support can do more of the things they enjoy, and meet new people at the same time.

With support and guidance from our volunteering team and staff, our buddies work with the people we support to help them access more activities.

Love gardening? So does Fred

Our buddies do more than take people places – they help build their confidence, give them something to look forward to and help the people we support to achieve even more.
