Please find here volunteering activities you could get involved with over the summer (and beyond!!):
KEEN is a student-supported Oxford-based charity that provides free social and sporting activities for young people with special needs in Oxford and the surrounding area. Behind every single one of our sessions is a dedicated group of student volunteers who plan and deliver the activities and provide one-to-one support for our participants so that they can join in regardless of their ability level. The people who participate have a very broad range of needs and disabilities and many have limited social interaction in their day-to-day lives. At KEEN they have the opportunity to take part in activities similar to those enjoyed by their able bodied peers, and can make new friends while having a lot of fun!
Prospective volunteers can find out more at www.keenoxford.org/volunteer. Volunteering with KEEN is extremely flexible as volunteers can attend our regular events as and when they please. You can drop in occasionally or be more actively involved in organising a whole range of events, from bringing stories to life at our “Zig-Zag” drama and crafts session, to helping our users get active at our “AllSorts” Saturday Sports sessions with giant footballs and many other fun bits of kit!
If you have any questions or would like further information, please do get in touch through firstname.lastname@example.org.
