VSI Christmas Project with Cuisle 23-27 December

The Irish Wheelchair Association is a voluntary organisation dedicated to the achievement of full social, economic and educational integration of people with physical disabilities, Cuisle is their holiday centre: www.cuisle.com

Christmas is a very special time at Cuisle, guests spend Christmas in the centre and staff and volunteers make every effort to make it a memorable experience for everyone. Volunteering at Cuisle at this time is a lot of fun and promises to be a very rewarding experience.

The age and background of the guests varies, all the guests are physically disabled and some of the guests may have speech impairments and / or intellectual disabilities. Where appropriate the guests are accompanied by carers and volunteers are not required to provide personal care for the guests. Activities will include lots of entertainment and music, if you play a musical instrument please bring it with you. Please note that this is a short project, volunteers will stay at Cuisle for 4 nights only. It is not possible to stay at Cuisle either before or afterwards as the centre will be closed.

Volunteers will help with socialising and interacting with the guests. Volunteers are also asked to help in the kitchen for approximately one hour each day.
