Nationwide, Online

The IHC i-Volunteer programme links people with intellectual disabilities and family carers with a friend, connecting online or by phone.

The relationship is one-to-one. This means you spend time speaking to only one person, so you can both get to know each other. You can both decide how often you are in contact, and it is a flexible, non time-specific arrangement. Contact IHC to learn more about this and other in person volunteering opportunities in your location.
