LinkLiving provide support to adult service users with a range of ages and varying physical and mental health conditions. 1-2 volunteers are needed to support the service users (and their support staff) to arrange and facilitate service users' wishes. Some service users may like the opportunity to run activities/groups themselves so the volunteer would support them to do this.

The role would also involve:- Researching venues, materials, travel and costs. Liaising with staff members. Helping organise publicity and promotion of activities with support from staff. Gathering feedback about activities from service users and staff. Contributing to the service user newsletter.
