Would you enjoy sharing your love of cooking and getting people started in their cooking journey? We support a group of people who like to try new things and we know they would enjoy learning some basic cooking skills!
Activities will include:
• Planning a cooking session
• Shopping for the ingredients (the cost can be reclaimed)
• Clearly communicating the simple steps in a recipe
• Encouraging people to have a go and celebrating the successes!
• Motivating the group to clean up at the end of the session
Activities will NOT include: Personal care, medication or financial assistance. If you'd like to volunteer with us or find out more before you apply, please get in touch!
Our volunteers play a vital role in our work and in return, we support them with: • Free certificated training (with access to 800 plus courses) • Free membership to an online shopping discount scheme • Comprehensive support from professional, friendly and trained Discovery staff • Agreed travel expenses reimbursed • An opportunity to gain real experience in the social care sector
We are Dimensions Somerset SEV – a new, social enterprise formed from a ground breaking partnership between Dimensions and Somerset County Council, together with customers, family carers and staff.
Discovery supports people with learning disabilities, autism, challenging behaviour and complex needs. We are driven by our values. People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do and we want every person we support to have a great life, with excellent outcomes.
