Gettaway Club Volunteer – Gettaway Club is a relaxed, fun group for adults with disabilities to socialise and meet new people. For the first hour, everyone plays a group game such as Family Fortunes, and for the second hour, there is a disco and karaoke. There are sometimes themed nights, and trips out to the panto. Volunteers are needed to get stuck in and help members of staff make sure everyone is having a great time!

Mencap want enthusiastic, willing volunteers to get involved and support members of staff deliver sessions.
