Volunteer with us

Scope is looking for volunteers to work with disabled children, young people and adults. You can support the day to day running of our centre or provide a creative activity or sport, either in our centre or in the local community. If you have a few hours a week to spare, we'd love to hear from you.

For all services in this location, see Scope in Dorset.

This service

Most things in life are more fun with a group of like-minded friends.

We give disabled adults the opportunity to try a full range of indoor and outdoor leisure and social activities. You’ll gain confidence, independence and learn new things.

Decide what you’d like to do and our staff will support you to make it happen. The types of activities you might try are:

  • gardening and plant production
  • sports, fitness or outdoor activities
  • carpentry
  • cooking
  • growing vegetables
  • social club
  • rambling
  • attending a football match
  • horse riding

Is it for you?

Our group activities are for disabled adults with any impairment or condition. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties.

You can pay using direct payments, personal budgets, private income, through the local authority or continuing health care funding.

Please get in touch. We’ll talk about what you want to do, and make a plan together to suit you.
