During 2017 volunteers at You Can Community Club delivered a range of positive activities for young people with disabilities and additional needs.
Many of these volunteers also have disabilities or additional needs but they have never allowed that to stop them achieving goals and supporting their local community. We calculated that during the year volunteers at the club provided 2417.5 hrs of their time to ensure club could deliver its aims. Based on the calculation of £10 per hour this represents £24175 of added value brought into our community by these dedicated and passionate individuals.
Many thanks to all the partners that have supported our volunteers during 2017 including Salford City Council’s Intergrated Youth Service, Lions International, DIY Theatre Company, Leonard Cheshire Disability.
If any employers want to give opportunities to young people with disabilities or additional needs then please get in touch. They are well trained and have lots to offer.

On behalf of everyone at You Can Community Club, all the young people that you reach and their families THANK YOU.
