Volunteering, education and training
Your Support Worker will give you advice on how to get back into education or apply for training. In the meantime, an excellent way to learn new skills and meet new people is to get involved in a volunteer scheme.
Not only is volunteering a great way to learn new skills that employers will find valuable, it can also be satisfying doing something that will have an impact on the community. Speak to your Support Worker to find out about local opportunities, or browse one of the links at the bottom of this page.
