Reading and Writing Support Volunteers
The Link are running a personal youth development programme which involves working with 16 young people to help them get achieve qualifications.. Most of these young people would benefit from having a volunteer sit alongside them to make sure they understand the question and the answer and if they can’t write so well maybe write the answer down for them. They will also be completing their Duke of Ed bronze award and some trips and a residential which the volunteer would be more than welcome to come along to.
