Supporting Kisharon is an exciting and meaningful way to mark your special year, build community volunteering hours for the Yoni Jesner or Duke of Edinburgh Awards, or simply enhance your life and that of others.
Bespoke bar and bat mitzvah programmes can be arranged with schools and youth groups to educate young people about disability awareness and to build bridges, breaking the barriers of discrimination.
We invite students to help throughout our organisation, including the Bike Shop, our Head Office, support with fundraising and community events, plus other suitable activities like camps and after-school clubs, sports activities in the park, gardening in our supportive living homes and music or arts and crafts sessions.
- An induction to Kisharon and an overview of our different services.
- Discussing what it means to have learning disabilities through interactive games and activities.
- Undertaking a creative activity with people we support.
- Planning and taking part in a fundraising project.
- Raising £200 to buy an iPad or communication software for a person supported by Kisharon.
- Fundraising to purchase equipment for Tuffkid Nursery.
- Presenting the equipment to a person with communication difficulties.
- Volunteering on a regular or ad-hoc basis.
In your words
Students have told us that they were nervous at the start of the first session, but most left feeling “inspired and wanting to get involved”.
A parent said: “The morning they spent with you during half term was inspiring and interesting and well put together! Joseph wasn’t interested in ‘wasting’ his morning at Kisharon, but he left feeling very well disposed towards the work that you all do and most importantly sympathetic to the needs of your users.”
