Services: Disability and Engagement Specialist
Supported Volunteering Pathways
ATHAC has extensive experience in supporting people with learning disability into volunteering opportunities. Students post college transitioning through to adulthood often require additional support to access opportunities. ATHAC is able to advise and work with organisations or individual’s to tailor support and placement within an organisation where access needs are properly assessed and placement tailored to individual choice and abilities.
