Would you like to make a big difference to someone with an intellectual disability?
Dunedin Friend-Link supports people with intellectual/learning disabilities to participate, contribute and belong to the Dunedin community. They work together with people to identify what would make life more enjoyable and support them to fill the gaps through friendship, group membership or even helping them to pursue a dream.
You can be matched with a specific friend or come along to help out in a group setting - or both! Some of the ways you can get involved are:
Support and training specific to your role will be provided by Friend-link.
Times are negotiated between friends or in the case of supporting a group, with the Friend-link office.
These are flexible and will depend on the arrangement. You might expect to commit a couple of hours per month.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
