Current opportunities

YOU can help young people and adults with Down’s syndrome in Aberdeen build their confidence and self-esteem, get out and about more doing the things they enjoy but also getting involved and taking part in new activities. It is a fun, rewarding and inspirational role - ALL IT TAKES is a commitment to a couple of meet ups every month. We will provide out of pocket expenses, training and all the help you need to be a successful Mentor. Don’t just listen to us. Here’s what our volunteers say:- "I have seen a real difference in Tommy's confidence, he chats away and has become very sociable, he even chatted up the barmaid on our last meet up." (feedback from volunteer). "The two young woman I mentor, meet up every couple of weeks. They usually just like to go for a coffee and a chat or to the cinema but recently they have decided on trying a Zumba class. I'm thrilled because they now feel confident with each other to try something new. Their friendship is blossoming and I'm part of making it happen." (feedback from volunteer).
