About Mencap

Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability. We want to see a world where people with a learning disability are valued equally, listened to and included.

We are determined to achieve this by changing attitudes, providing services and influencing those who can help us change the lives of people with a learning disability.

Volunteering with Mencap is YOUR opportunity to help us achieve this, whilst having the chance to develop your skills, meet new people and join a passionate and dedicated team.

Job Advert

Please note: this role will now begin in August 2019. 

If you're looking for a volunteer role that will help support or develop your teaching and facilitation skills, this could be the role for you! 

We support a group of people with a learning disability in Mencap’s Liverpool Office. They are a fantastic group who have joined the ‘Empower Me’ Project. Session topics cover CV writing skills, job searching tips, interview skills, teamwork and more. As a volunteer, you will support the development of these skills, which are required to enter employment.

We will provide you with support and guidance during sessions. If you share the belief that people with disabilities are capable and deserve the chance to prove themselves in the world of work, this role could be the one for you.
