Volunteering

PAMIS is passionate about involving volunteers as they play a vital role in sustaining and enhancing some of our services and bringing something unique to our organisation.

Volunteers offer practical help with leisure activities, friendship clubs and fun days.  We hosted a very successful Summer Camp which was run by staff and volunteers/students.  They can also offer much needed IT support to our families, particularly as we develop digital passports for all our young people with PMLD.  It is a great way for volunteers to get to know our families and understand more about PMLD.  We have a training and development policy and will train new volunteers to ensure they have the necessary skills to enable them in their role.

Currently, we recruit a number of student volunteers, but are keen to involve anyone with an interest in PAMIS’ work, please contact us if you are interested.  We value our volunteers and always have room for a few more!
