A charity which helps people with learning difficulties is appealing for volunteers to come forward and make a difference.

Community Service Volunteers is looking for people to help with its Vocal, Futures and Choices projects which are running in West Norfolk.

The charities are looking for mentors to help adults and teenagers to live independently.

The Vocal project, which has been running for 22 years and has more than 80 clients, creates opportunities for adults with learning difficulties.

While the Futures group helps youngsters who are leaving school with their next steps. It is currently helping more than 30 people.

The Choices group, which is helping 15 clients, supports adults to live as independently as possible within their communities.

Project co-ordinator Helen Cooper is looking for volunteers to provide a regular chunk of time to help the clients with everyday tasks.

She said: “Volunteers can develop lots of different skills which are excellent to put on your cv. If anyone is looking to get into health and social care, volunteering is a good way to get a taste of it. They will also get the feel good factor for putting something back in the community.”
