Travel Buddies

We are looking for about 5 or 6 volunteers to travel to and from college with young adults with learning and physical disabilities. They will need to support the young people in and out of the taxi, provide reassurance and support on the journey and ease any anxieties they may have. Volunteers would be taken home after the young person had been taken to college. College hours such as St Vincent's in Gosport, Highbury and Portsmouth are usually 9.30 am to 3.30 pm Monday to Friday so the volunteers would need to be available from 8.30 am to about 10.30 am and from 2.30 to about 4.30 pm (depending on where about in Portsmouth the young people live and which college they are attending). Parents and members of the Integrated Learning Disability Service will give more detailed guidance for each individual person. Volunteers would need and up to date DBS check.
