What is the Treloar Trust?

The Treloar Trust provides education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training to young people with physical disabilities from all over the UK and overseas. Our aim is to prepare these young people for adult life, giving them the confidence and skills to achieve their full potential.

Treloar School and Treloar College are run by the Trust. They are comprised of a non-maintained Nursery (2-5 years), School (4-18 years) and College (16 to 25 years). In School we challenge young people and nurture their abilities to prepare them for the next stage in their lives, our aim being that every student leaves having achieved at least one nationally recognised qualification. In College, our aim is to enable all learners to achieve their long-term goals of a more independent life and make a meaningful contribution to their community, including higher education and employment.

Why we need you:

Our School classrooms are enjoyable, vibrant and unique environments. Students benefit from our excellent teaching and support staff; however, Voluntary Helpers provide our students with additional support and interaction with members of the community. Voluntary Helpers will support students in a variety of classroom activities and will be supported in their duties by a teacher and other members of staff. Let us know your interests and expertise and we will place in you an appropriate classroom setting.

What will I be doing?

  • Supporting students in a variety of classrooms activities:
  • Reading / Writing
  • Supporting students with their computer skills
  • Story Telling
  • A variety of unique activities (art, sport, creative, etc.)
  • Life skills learning (i.e. cooking, trip planning, etc.)
  • Helping with basic practical tasks (i.e. getting things from bags, etc.) 

How much time do I need to commit to?

Voluntary Helpers should commit to one morning or afternoon a week (however alternative hours can be discussed). A commitment of one academic term is required.

  1. Strong interpersonal skills and patience

What training will be provided?

It’s important that all Treloar Voluntary Helpers have the skills to perform well in their role, to comply with policies and procedures and to interact with the students.  With this in mind Voluntary Helpers attend an induction and will be supported throughout their volunteering experience.

Who are Treloar’s Voluntary Helpers?

Treloar’s Voluntary Helpers are friendly and considerate community members who help Treloar’s achieve our mission. Voluntary Helpers donate their time and skills in a variety of roles and vary in age and experience; however, all Voluntary Helpers are committed to promoting and safeguarding the welfare of Treloar’s students.

Why Volunteer with us?

Volunteering with Treloar’s is rewarding on a number of levels. Being a Voluntary Helper offers the opportunity to work (directly or indirectly) with young people who, because of disability or illness, require the very special support that we give them. Whether you are a student looking to gain experience working with young people to broaden your career path, a recent retiree who would like to share their skills, experience and time or a local resident who enjoys giving back to their community a Treloar’s Voluntary Helper role may be the perfect fit.
