We welcome volunteers from all sections of the community. Volunteers can chose to support our clients on the work placement scheme. Please note that the minimum age for our volunteers is now 14 years old.
Over time they will build up confidence in their abilities and increase their self-esteem. Stonebridge offers an environment for individuals to express themselves and learn social skills as well as picking up experience of working.
Volunteers duration with us varies. Some have been with us for 12 years! Most stay for a couple of years and then move on to college, employment or further training.
