Work with disabeld people in Tonneins - 2
Description: The Association of Paralysed France (APF) was founded and established in 1933 by four individuals who had been diagnosed with polio. They formed the association in response to the social exclusion and isolation of which they had been victims of. The now state-approved APF is a national association of defence and, to this day, aims to represent and empower individuals with motor disabilities and multiple disabilities. The APF in France consists of 26,000 members, 30,000 users, 25,000 volunteers and 13,500 employees.
Type of Work: Volunteers will help the local permanent staff in planning activities for the residents. Any artistic likes and abilities are highly encouraged and can be used in creating different activities relating to music, film, theatre etc. Volunteers will be expected to organize activities during the days such as games, outdoor excursions, sightseeing, field trips. The list of possible activities is limitless and each volunteer can bring their own ideas and creativity to the table. Interpersonal skills and motivation will help volunteers to develop and accomplish the required tasks easily and naturally.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be house in dorm-like double rooms within a house. All food and housing utilities (including mattresses and bedding) are completely provided for on site.
