We invited Nationwide employees and members from the Bournemouth area to sign up to volunteer their time for four different projects, including:

  • Creating an accessible pets corner for the Victoria Education Centre, a residential and day school in Poole for young disabled people 
  • Renovating the garden and spending time with the residents at James Burns House, a care home run by Leonard Cheshire Disability for disabled people
  • Repainting key areas of the Portfield School, which is run by Autism Wessex, offering specialist education for children with autism 
  • Designing and delivering an employability workshop for young people on behalf of BCHA, a charity that helps young people improve their chances of finding employment

80 volunteers, 560 hours of volunteer time and many happy faces has encouraged us to roll the Side by Side project out nationwide – watch this space for more details!
