Supported volunteering

YAS has a new project that provides dedicated support to young people who either have a disability or who are NEET (not in education, employment or training) to volunteer in their local community.

We support young people between the ages of 16-25 to find good quality volunteering opportunities that meet their skills, interests and passions. We will help you find a great volunteering placement, support you with any application process and also attend initial visits to placements. We will stay in touch and make sure that you are enjoying your placement and provide any support where its needed. We can also provide you with national volunteering certificates on reaching certain milestones.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us
