There are plenty of ways you can volunteer with a health condition or disability and we want to help you find the right role for you. Read more below to find out how you can make a difference today.
Most charities, services and organisations will adapt volunteering roles wherever possible, so if you have a health condition or disability, you can still get involved. This involves guiding you through the application process, providing additional equipment to assist you in your role, and helping you undertake relevant training.
Although most organisations will be happy to make adjustments to suit individual needs, some proactively champion volunteering roles for people with health conditions and disabilities e.g. Citizens Advice. By recruiting more volunteers with health conditions and disabilities, organisations can develop their understanding of needs and accessibility issues facing individuals like yourself.
If volunteering in a healthcare or disability field, you will have greater empathy and understanding towards individuals that the charity, service or organisation aims to support. You could also help to break down false stereotypes and perceptions held by society.
