He is looking for someone who is enthusiastic and has a good sense of humour and can support him to access activities that he enjoys. He also wants someone who he can have some banter with.

Future Directions are a not-for-profit organisation that provides support to a wide range of individuals, including people with learning disabilities.  We are a person centred organisation, meaning that we always put the needs of the individual at the centre of everything we do.

What we're looking for:

We are looking for volunteers to help out on our new walking group, to make sure the walks are friendly, safe and enjoyable.

If you want to help people in your local community to get active and healthy, and to have fun, then we could have the perfect opportunity for  you.

We are looking for people who have an enthusiasm for walking and its benefits, and can share this with others.  We are also looking for people who are friendly, welcoming and have good communications skills.  You will also need to be reliable, punctual, honest and well-organised.  An ability to drive the mini bus would be a fantastic extra but is not essential.
