People in East Yorkshire are being urged to make a difference by volunteering for a national charity that supports disabled youngsters.

Caudwell Children provides treatment, equipment and short holidays to children who are either disabled or have a life-threatening or life-limiting illness – as well as support for their families and carers.

Now, in a bid to keep up with the growing demand for its services, it is running an induction programme for would-be volunteers at Driffield Community Centre on May 18.

Having undergone the induction, those deciding they want to help deliver the charity’s free Family Services programme will then be provided with full, on-the-job training.

The programme involves support at home and in hospital and also helps families get access to the statutory support and funding they are entitled to by helping them to fill out the necessary forms.

Potential volunteers or families wanting to use the charity’s services can get more information by calling Lucy Wood, the charity’s family services coordinator for the region, on 07972 688019.
