Sharing Lives – Sharing Experiences! Agenzija Sapport has issued a call for volunteers in Gozo and Malta.
Agenzija Sapport facilitates voluntary work experiences with persons with disability. It said that volunteers can now join the Agency’s new service – Sharing Lives – to offer some of their time to support persons with disability within the community.
Sharing Lives is a new service that focuses on doing outreach for volunteers who can befriend persons with disability. The befriending aspect of the service will help in initiating dialogue and collaboration between people with disability and mainstream society.
Agenzija Sapport added that it will give the opportunity for persons with disability to take part in events and activities to overcome social exclusion while developing meaningful relationships.
Volunteers are trained and continuously supported thus ensuring that the service provided is of high standard, Agenzija Sapport said.
Persons with disability benefiting from the Sharing Lives service are adults, over 18 years, and are known service users of other Sapport services.
Those interested in becoming volunteers with Sharing Lives may contact Agenzija Sapport on firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling the application form that can be downloaded from here. Volunteers must be 16 years and over, and are provided with the necessary training.
