Connect Buddies is a new exciting service available from Conwy ConnectcblogoSU-poster

This exciting new service will help people with a learning disability to lead an active social life.

So if you are unable to go to events or other activities because you don’t have a support worker and feel a little nervous, or you only have a support worker until a certain time and this stops you from going to places – GET IN TOUCH!!

Volunteering – how can I become a buddy?

Being a buddy will cost you nothing and can be hugely rewarding. How often you are available and for how long is also entirely up to you.

There is a leaflet available about volunteering to be a Connect Buddy.buddies leaflet snip
