At Real Life Options we champion the everyday choices of the people we support. Our Real Life volunteers are vital in supporting this aim, helping to provide greater control to the people we support through community, activity or driver volunteering.
Our volunteers help provide responsive, person-centred support for people with learning and physical disabilities, autism, complex needs and behaviours that challenge. Through their help we are able to offer people pathways to independence and healthy lifestyles, within their own communities.
Could you offer some time to make a real difference to people’s lives? Do you have good communication skills (verbal and non-verbal) and a friendly personality?
As a Real Life volunteer, you’ll receive a first class induction, on-going training and expenses paid whilst gaining new skills, meeting amazing people and feeling great satisfaction from making a positive difference to people’s lives.
All applicants will be subject to PVG/DBS checks. To find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org

"Good support plans mean people get good consistency of care and that is so important to people who need routine."
A staff member from Yorkshire
“My son is happy there; doing lots of activities; in his garden, playing football, working at the furniture project and at the moment someone is teaching him to fish. He has learned a whole host of new skills with Real Life Options.”
