Sense’s life-changing short breaks

Sense is a national charity that supports people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs, to enjoy more independent lives. Our expertise in supporting individuals with communication needs benefits people of all ages, as well as their families and carers.

You’ll be joining a diverse team and network of people with a real passion for enabling individuals to get the most from their befriending sessions.  As a volunteer, you will receive specialist training and support before starting sessions with your buddy.   You’ll also initially have supervised sessions to make sure we’re providing the best service possible for our young people.

Put your skills forward for the challenge today, we are confident that you will gain as much as you give.
