Description

Charlotte would love a volunteer who can meet with her during the weekday to talk or to help her do her small physical exercises. Charlotte doesn’t get out very much on her own, so she would love to your help to get out but would also love to hear about your stories.

As a friend to someone with a disability you can have a profound effect on their life by reducing loneliness and isolation; helping to achieve hopes and dreams; developing personal networks and relationships; decreasing vulnerability; and increasing self-confidence, mental and physical health.

Join our team of more than 250 volunteer Allys who are enriching the lives of someone in their community. You will gain a wonderful new friendship – someone to share activities that you love. You need to be over the age of 18 and to make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.

INTERESTED? CONTACT US DIRECT AT [email protected] or 613-761-9522
