No Limits Neurodiversity

No Limits Neurodiversity

Please note this project is currently at capacity. New volunteers will be placed on a waiting list after completing the application process. 

No Limits is a third sector organisation which supports children and teenagers on the autism spectrum and their families. No Limits provides a range of services and activities which needs help from volunteers. 

At No Limits the Developmental Individual Relationship (DIR) based approach (Otherwise known as Floortime) is used to support the children and teenagers to develop social skills through meaningful experience based interactions. 

Volunteers will help support children who access Social Skills groups on a Saturday through 1:1 child led play (Floortime) and support them to join in with group activities such as  circle time, parachute games, obstacle courses. During the sessions volunteers support their child to regulate, engage, communicate, problem solve and think independently. Volunteers will receive coaching by an experienced staff member. Formal training in the DIR/Floortime model is also provided.

Cardiff volunteering will be able to pay all of your travel expenses, and help you arrange travel up to the centre. If you have any questions about any of this please email Cardiff Volunteering.

 

Level of Commitment: Once a week during term time, not including exam period. You will be assigned to one of three groups and each group will attend one session every three weeks according to a rota to ensure each volunteer has an opportunity to attend sessions this year.

 

Application Process

  1. Please send an up-to-date CV to the Lead Volunteer (AdamsLM1@cardiff.ac.uk) who will then pass on the document to the staff at No Limits.
  2. E-mail the Project Co-Ordinator (snapeH1@cardiff.ac.uk) and request an application form. After you have completed the form please return it to the Project Co-Ordinator.
  3. You will then be invited to attend a short, informal interview. This is in order to get an idea of why you would like to become a volunteer and what you think you can bring to the sessions.
  4. After completing the previous steps and having been successful in your application, you should sort out a DBS form. This step is for volunteers who have not compeleted a DBS form in the last 12 months and for international students. You can find more information here: https://www.cardiffstudents.com/jobs-skills/volunteering/volunteers/dbs/#resources
  5. Finally, make sure to join the No Limits Facebook group! This is where I send out updates regarding the project. This is particularly important as plans are constantly changing as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns. You can find the link to the group on the left-hand side of this page.
