Volunteering with disabled people
Various units offer volunteering opportunities with disabled people on weekdays and on weekends, both during the day and in the evenings. Volunteers can join for one time or on a regular basis. Everybody can find a task suitable for their life situation and interests.
No previous experience is required, and volunteers are familiarized with each task. For example, volunteers can join excursions to push wheelchairs, or they can offer a helping hand in group activities.
