Description

At Lead Scotland we believe in the power of learning. We believe that offering disabled people and carers the right supportive environment in which to learn and grow which enables the self-creation of positive futures in education, community involvement and work.
We offer SCQF accredited formal learning and informal confidence building activities, focused on digital skills to disabled people throughout the north of Scotland, their carers and the organisations who support them so that they will be able to actively contribute to their own communities and improve their own lives. We will tailor support to individuals and groups as per their self-defined needs.
This service is supported by volunteers who act as service deliverers and enablers and who can provide dedicated one–to–one input, supporting participants into learning, training and/or volunteering opportunities as appropriate to need.
“Learning is more than just an experience, learning builds your future”
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference. All volunteers are greatly appreciated and provided with excellent training and ongoing support.
