Time2Share was set up to support families with a disabled child. They offer social support and to go out independently.
They recruit local volunteers who are linked 1:1 with a child and their family. They visit regularly and spend time doing something which the child chooses to do.
Current activities include cycling, going to the cinema, going for a walk, visiting theme parks, going out for a meal, shopping etc. The scheme is very flexible and many parents say they appreciate having someone around with extra energy!
It gives children an opportunity to have an independent social life and a sense that they have someone who comes to spend time just with them. It also gives parents / carers a chance to have a short break and catch up with other things.
All volunteers are fully checked and undergo a formal Criminal Records Bureau check.
Currently they are funded to work in Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset.
