We have a volunteer that works with us to enhance the services we provide. They are one of our ex-residents.
They have set up an IT department and is available to help residents improve their IT skills in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Support can be given for those who require a beginner’s introduction or need more advanced instruction.
They are also working on a number of fundraising ideas and means by which we can seek donations of items that may prove useful to residents when they take up their independence once more. They can also support clients during the first few weeks after leaving Wytham Hall.
Often residents feel anxious over moving to their own accommodation. The volunteer is able to use their experience to help allay any fears and support with the practical issues of moving.
They are also available to support residents to access suitable volunteering opportunities.
