Leeds Teaching Hospital’s are looking for volunteers to support people with learning disabilities or autism

Leeds Teaching Hospital’s Get Me Better! Champions have learning disabilities or autism. They work to make the Trust’s services better. They challenge what people think about autism and learning disabilities and teach awareness.

The team work with Hospital and Community Services. They also give administrative support to staff at the Trust headquarters. They do jobs such as, photocopying, document binding, or collecting and delivering post.

The success of the Get Me Better! Programme means that Leeds Teaching Hospitals are looking for volunteers. The volunteers will work with Champions who need additional support to do their role.

Everyone’s needs will be different. Your role could be offering help with reading instructions and notices, using office equipment or understanding work requests. It could be to simply be on hand as a colleague to answer questions.

The Get Me Better! Champions work Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 3.30pm. All that is asked is that you’re willing and able to work a minimum of two hours per week, or equivalent.

Exact days and times will be decided together to make sure volunteering fits in with your personal circumstances.

Interviews for this opportunity will take place on 1 June 2017.
