Disability Energy Champion Volunteer - volunteering opportunity
Caudwell International Children's Centre,
Keele Science and Innovation Park
Established in 2000, Caudwell Children is a national charity which works to transform the lives of disabled children and their families, enabling them to challenge the barriers they face throughout childhood by providing practical and emotional support.
The charity is going through an exciting period of growth having recently opened a new state-of-the-art facility for multi-disciplinary therapy programmes for childhood disability and research of neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism, within the grounds of Keele University.
The family support service that we deliver at Caudwell Children is instrumental in ensuring that we help as many disabled children as we can. The energy redress scheme is a funded project to support parents/carers of disabled children in their own home, to provide the support that they need as well as to identify and engage families to address energy efficiency and affordability, a huge step to transforming the lives of disabled children.
Whilst we’re based in Staffordshire, our ongoing “Warm Homes” project includes working with the families of disabled children in Birmingham, providing family support services and energy advice. We’re looking for Birmingham-based volunteers for this project - if you're interested, please get in touch for more details!
