We need volunteers to teach young adults on a one to one basis a range of basic functional literacy skills for example:  reading, writing, spelling, punctuation, letter writing, form-filling, counting and basic math skills.
 
Ideally these volunteers will have experience or a background in teaching or be a trained adult literacy tutor.

The H.S.E published a report and plan around day services in 2012. It is called "New Directions: personal support services for adults with disabilities". The H.S.E have now released draft standards for public consultation. The people we support,family members and staff can all give feedback on the standards before Friday 17th October.  Once the standards are finalised, they will form the basis around how day services are evaluated into the future. We attach the draft interim standards and the feedback forms for your information.
