Post available
Peer Buddy (BB Citizen Prog)
Location Ballintoy
Description

Best Buddies aims to match people with learning disabilities with their non-disabled peers through fun, social activity and experiences. 

All volunteers and people with learning disabilities meet as a group once a month to take part in activities which have been chosen by the group e.g. teambuilding, movie nights, bowling, go-karting, airsoft, discos, restaurants etc. 

 After taking part in group activities some people will be matched with a peer (with a learning disability). 

 Once matched, the pair undertake to make contact with each other once a week via phone, text, social media etc and will meet twice a month for an activity that they both enjoy e.g. shopping, coffee, cinema, sports etc (one of these meets can be a group activity). 

 No previous experience with people with learning disability is required and the only requirement is a willingness to commit to the volunteer opportunity and have the desire to meet new people and have FUN!
