VIPS Plus Young Adult Volunteers
Within our young adults services (VIPS PLUS) we believe that it is crucial for our young adults to get a taste of what it is like to work, as part of becoming an independent young adult. We therefore offer work experience to our service users to help them flourish into responsible young adults. Learning many new skills along the way, such as time keeping, communication skills, responsibilities and working as part of a team.
