Special Needs Volunteers

Special Needs are conditions or illnesses that require assistance from another individual or group. Across the World there are children and adults who are in need of assistance because of medical, emotional, or learning difficulties. These situations are generally referred to as Special Needs and depending on the location, are catered for at many levels by volunteers. The most common Special Needs groups are educational, emotional, medical and physical and include every age group. Less wealthy countries need volunteers and charity funding to cope with the demands of caring for special needs and many UK based organisations can help you organise a volunteer placement.
