Phabsoc is a student led charity that takes children and young adults with disabilities on fun and exciting day trips. We organise a diverse programme of activities with the end of goal of empowering these young people and focussing on their abilities rather than their disabilities. Our sessions range from on campus sports and arts and crafts events, to off-campus day trips to exciting destinations such as Harry Potter Studio Tour, Alton Towers, Mills Adventure Base, Museums and many more. We pride ourselves on the fact that we give attentive care on a one to one basis. Providing children with such care gives them the opportunity to enjoy activities that they may not otherwise get the chance to do. This is an incredibly rewarding society for students looking to get something different out of their university experience.
When are the trips held?.
8 Phab trips are held on Sundays throughout the academic year. As a member you will receive an email inviting you to sign up 2 weeks before each trip.
Are prior experience and/or qualifications necessary?
No. PhabSoc will provide all volunteers with comprehensive training in how to deal with the various conditions which they may encounter whilst caring for our participants. We will also provide basic First Aid training and you are requied to complete a DBS form with us, free of charge.
It is up to you as volunteers to decide how much you want to get involved with Phabsoc. Phabsoc is very casual, you can come to as many or as little trips as you would like throughout the year.
