Volunteering with Sólás...


Provides you an excellent opportunity to help children with learning difficulties and gain experience in a happy environment.


We rely on volunteers for a range of activities in our Educational Development programmes, 'Back on Track’ and 'Kids Support Den', and our Social Development programmes, ‘Happy Hands’ ‘Time for Me’ and ‘Champ Youth’.


As a volunteer you will play a vital role encouraging children with autism to socialise and integrate with other children, support their emotional wellbeing, and help them develop their communication skills.


You will support the children, encouraging them to play, socialise and have fun in a safe and happy environment.
