Organisation: Enhanceable

Tell us a little about your organisation:

EnhanceAble is a longstanding charity dedicated to providing exceptional social care and support services for children, adults, and young people with disabilities. With a legacy spanning over 60 years, we operate various programmes including an Adult Day Centre in Kingston, the renowned CLICK Cafe also in Kingston, After-School Clubs in Kingston, a Children’s Respite House in Chessington, an Adult Respite House in Epsom, and a Living Service offering outreach support in local boroughs.

Why are volunteers valuable to your organisation?

Volunteers play a pivotal role in the smooth operation of our services, particularly in our CLICK Cafe, where they provide invaluable assistance. Additionally, volunteers enhance our After-School Clubs and other programmes, offering crucial support. We welcome volunteers aged 16 and above, including individuals with additional needs or disabilities, providing enriching experiences and meaningful roles within our organisation.

What volunteer role/s do you have available?

CLICK Cafe Volunteer: Assist with baking, cooking, serving teas/coffees, taking orders, and engaging with customers. Many of our CLICK Cafe volunteers have additional needs, and it is a great way to develop skills and confidence while making new friends and meeting new people. (Monday-Friday, 2pm-6pm, flexible scheduling available)

After-School Clubs Volunteer: Join us during term-time on Mondays (4pm-6pm), Tuesdays (4pm-6pm or 6pm-8pm) to support children with disabilities in various activities such as games, sports, and arts and crafts. It’s a rewarding opportunity to interact with children and make a positive impact in their lives.

Day Centre Volunteer: Assist adult service users in a range of activities including music groups, arts and crafts, bowling, karaoke, and more. Volunteers may also help with serving refreshments and maintaining cleanliness during sessions. Flexible scheduling available Monday to Friday, between 8:30am-4:30pm.
