To befriend and support a person with a mild to moderate intellectual disability to pursue social activities, e.g. cinema, shopping, local library. Sometimes young people with intellectual disability just need a little encouragement and practice to help them navigate their community independently. sometimes they need the information and support to join a local club or pursue a hobby. This is an opportunity to get to know a young person while having fun and supporting them towards greater independence and community living. Volunteers may befriend an individual on a one-to-one basis or get involved in a group activity.
