Would you like to make a difference to the life of a child or young person with learning disabilities in your area?

Eddies is looking for volunteers for its Befriending & Family Support Schemes.

Our Befriending scheme matches volunteers young people with learning disabilities, to enable them to socialise, doing fun things like bowling or going to the cinema. It only takes a few hours of your time and it really does change lives.

Our Family Support scheme provides extra help for parents and carers when and where they need it most by providing a trained volunteer to regularly visit the child or young person and provide practical help to the family.

We think our volunteers are exceptional and you could be too!



We have seen volunteers gain more confidence and increased self-esteem as a direct result of their volunteering experience with Eddie’s. Some have felt more able to go back into paid employment successfully and others have completely changed career paths because of the joy they have got out of volunteering.

A couple of quotes from our recent volunteer survey:

“Helping me to rebuild my confidence and get things back into perspective after a difficult time”



“Compared to other volunteering experiences this has been hands down the best I have had. It has enhanced my life considerably and much of that is down to the professionalism, enthusiasm and organisation of Eddie’s”



Our extensive free training program gives new volunteers with little or no experience the skills and confidence they need to progress. These sessions are run by external trainers who are experts in their field. The feedback we have had from the training we provide is excellent, giving people practical advice and information.



What have you got to lose?..
