IHC One to One Friendship Volunteer Programme

The IHC volunteer programme is about one-to-one friendship in the community. This is what makes being a volunteer for IHC so unique. Spend time doing what you want to do, when you want to do it, with a person with an intellectual disability.


By taking a moment to connect with someone with an intellectual disability, you can make a positive change in someone’s life and a new friend in the process.

If you volunteer with IHC you’ll be matched with someone who enjoys doing the same stuff you do.

It’s all about shared interests and doing what you want to do. So whether it’s exercising, going to a movie, or grabbing a bite to eat you’ll be doing things you both enjoy.

Just keep doing what you usually do and include someone with similar interests.

It is not time specific

There is choice

There is flexibility

the emphasis is on fun

The relationship is one-to-one. This means that you spend time with only one person, so you both get to know each other in order to develop a genuine friendship.

You will be provided with full orientation, and receive on going support!

Exciting opportunity coming to Nelson, get in touch today and help make a positive difference in the life of someone with Intellectual Disability in the New Year! Start 2018 on a very positive note!
