Description: The Irish Wheelchair Association is a voluntary organisation dedicated to the achievement of full social, economic and educational integration of people with physical disabilities, Cuisle is their holiday and respite centre (www.cuisle.com).
Type of Work: Socialising and interacting with the holiday guests and accompanying them on trips. The age and background of the guests varies, all the guests have physical disabilities and some may have speech impairments and/or learning disabilities. Activities will include lots of entertainment and music, if you play a musical instrument please bring it with you. Volunteers are also asked to help in the kitchen for approximately one hour each day. Volunteering at Cuisle is a lot of fun and is a very rewarding experience.
Study Theme: Disability issues.
Accommodation: Double rooms. Meals are provided by the centre.
Language: Fluent English is essential in order to communicate with the guests.
Requirements: Volunteers need flexibility, initiative and independence.
Approximate Location: Cuisle is in an isolated area in the countryside, in the grounds of Donamon Castle, 15km from Roscommon Town.
Notes: Volunteers will work with local volunteers and staff. The volunteers will be interviewed via Skype, and required to provide two referees, a Police Check, to complete a questionnaire and Declaration Form. Please send your application first and we will contact you with further information. These procedures take time and volunteers are encouraged to apply well in advance of the project start date.
