Get involved - volunteer!

We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to be a friend to people with learning disabilities in Cardiff and Bridgend. Whether you've got a hobby that you would like to share, a particular interest, or simply love having a chat over a cup of coffee, you could be helping someone achieve a life goal.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to join a growing team of mirus volunteers making a difference to people with learning disabilities through friendships, social groups, craft groups and growing on our allotment. 

We are looking for volunteers aged 18 or over, who are able to give their time, on a weekly or fortnightly basis, preferably for at least 6 months. We have a wide range of hours available, so volunteering with us is suitable for people who work or study full time, as there are opportunities to volunteer during the evenings and weekends, as well as week days. Training, induction and ongoing support will be provided through a Volunteer Coordinator. DBS is undertaken for all volunteers. This is a voluntary role, however, out-of-pocket expenses - such as travel, entry fees, or light refreshments - can also be provided. Volunteering at mirus can be a great way to learn new skills, make friends, and it makes you feel good!
