Dear Candidate,

Thank you for your interest in the position of Volunteer with your local Charity for people with Additional Needs. To clarify the position is for part-time volunteering in the evenings, day times, at weekends and during school holidays for people aged 13 years and over.

Because of funding stringencies, ILEAP cannot guarantee that you will be offered volunteering opportunities and you are under no obligation to accept the opportunity that is offered, although once you commit to a volunteer programme we require your reliability.

Things for you to do now:

  • Please visit our website www.ileap.co.uk for further information about our work.
  • Please complete the Expression of Interest Form outlining your relevant experience and / or the reasons you are interested in volunteering with people with Additional Needs and their families and supply two current referees.
  • Please return all of the paperwork as soon as possible
  • On receipt of your form we will write to your referees and we will get in touch with you with further information, once satisfactory references have been received.

If you do not hear from us then you can assume that on this occasion your expression of interest has been unsuccessful.

Once again, thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours Inclusively

Natalie Taylor

Covid 19 Update: August 16th 2021

The Government advice prior to August 16th 2021 was that if you came into contact with someone with Covid 19 “You must self-isolate for 10 days because this is how long it can take to develop the infection after being exposed (the incubation period).” ILEAP Charity are going to continue with this approach in the coming weeks and months and see how the situation develops. This will help us to protect those vulnerable members who have been unable to be vaccinated. So our advice is: 1. Do not attend ILEAP if you have come into contact with anyone who has Covid 19, take the relevant tests and do not attend for 10 days
2. Do not attend ILEAP Sessions if you or any one you live with has any of the following Covid Symptons:
The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
  • If you have any of these symptoms, get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if you have coronavirus and stay at home until you get your result, even if the symptoms are mild. 3. Take regular Rapid Antigen Tests prior to ILEAP sessions and only attend if your result is negative. (If positive, get a PCR test and follow the advice)
    4. When attending ILEAP sessions:
  • ollow our guidelines which have been implemented to protect you and your friends and loved ones
  • Maintain social distancing wherever possible
  • Regularly wash and sanitise your hands.
  • Wear a face mask when indoor
