Project Description: This is an opportunity to learn new skills in a unique environment that will make you stand out to future employers. Whether your interests lie indoors or out, there are a range of activities in need of enthusiastic help. We expect our coworkers to be responsible and stress that as a co-worker you should be willing to work where your help is most needed. Thornage Hall is an independent charity located in the idyllic countryside of North Norfolk which provides supported living and work and learning opportunities for adults with learning disabilities.

Work: Support in the houses with preparing meals, outings and weekend activities and attending festival celebrations i.e. New Years eve party, outings, communal meals. Evenings and week-ends are spent sharing leisure time, cultural events and outings together. As well as leisure time the weekends involve supporting with independent living skills and maintenance of the farm and garden, working in day services on the land and art, craft and cooking and baking workshops. Thornage Hall runs a biodynamic farm and garden which provides food for those living in our houses, as well as sales to local organic outlets. Converted farm buildings are now studios for Day Services offering a range of crafts, IT, weaving etc. Thornage Hall has a person centred approach to support tenants and service users meaning that they are supported to live their lives as independently as possible in the way they choose, and they are supported in doing things for themselves.

Requirements: Volunteers need to be flexible and adaptable and not afraid to try new things. They need to be willing to get involved in the life of our community, attending festivals and celebrations, and sharing meals and home life with the tenants.
