Location: Cheese and Grain, Market Yard, Justice Lane, Frome, Somerset, BA11 1BE

Description

KeyRing supports adults with a learning disability in Frome to live an independent and fulfilling life. Our vision is for vulnerable people to be at the heart of their communities, sharing skills and talents for the whole communities benefit. This ‘vision’ has led us to establishing two community hubs per week in the heart of Frome, and we would love your help!

What are we looking for?

We are looking for empathetic and community minded individuals, who are able to donate 3 hours per week of their time to a fantastic cause.

What do the community hubs entail?

Our weekly hubs are led by our members. They choose the activity or theme of the hub sessions and we are looking for volunteers to help facilitate this. As an example, previous hub sessions have included;

• Help with employability skills such as CV writing.
• Literacy and numeracy classes.
• Informative speakers, such as PCSO’S and ‘Healthy hearts’.
• Support with paperwork and signposting.
• Trips out to local attractions.
• Fun and social activities such as quizzes and bingo.
