ICYE in the World
|Name:||Fethneys, Leonard Cheshire|
|Brief description and main aims|
Leonard Cheshire Fethneys aims to provide choice, accommodation and opportunities for young disabled people. At the beginning of July this year the project moved to Worthing in West Sussex in to a brand new, slightly bigger care home.
It offers the opportunity to 10 young adults with physical disabilities, aged 18-30, to live in a small community care home. Support is given to enable them to be as independent as possible, and they are hoping to move into and live in the local community, outside of the project, eventually.
The role of volunteers at the Leonard Cheshire Fethneys is to support the staff team and work alongside them in providing an active, involving and stimulating environment for the residents.
|Volunteer requirements / Skills|
The project is looking for volunteers who wish to give something back to local communities. They should enjoy and want to work with people with disabilities and to enhance the quality of their lives. Key skills include being able to use your own initiative, empathising with the needs of others, working on your own and as part of a team, reliability and punctuality.
Worthing is on the southeast coast of England in the county of West Sussex, near to the famous seaside town of Brighton, which is approximately 15 kilometres away.
|Hosting Situation (Board & Lodging)|
Volunteers together live either in a flat in the local village or in a shared house. All volunteers have their own room. Volunteers cook for themselves at their accommodation.
