We know it can be hard to donate cash at the moment, but your skills and time are just as valuable.

That is why we've launched our 'DIY Days' across our services in Colchester and Dereham. By spending a day (or just a few hours) decorating, plumbing, gardening, or jet-washing, volunteers can make a real impact on the internal and external environments of our school, opportunities centres and residential homes.

The days are perfect for Corporate Volunteering days or just getting out and volunteering your time/skills. They also mean that our limited maintenance budget can be spent on the 'big stuff' and that our support workers can focus their time on the people we support. 

Recently we've had the support of Sky Engineers at our campus in Peldon, and volunteers at the Jigsaw Centre resulting in rooms being redecorated, gardens weeded, sheds being demolished and fire escapes painted. 

 

If you would like to join us at one the DIY Days below the we'd love to hear from you. Alternatively if you can volunteer a trade or bring a group along on another date more convenient to you then please just get in touch.
