Description

Gary is in his mid 50s and has Downs Syndrome. He has been waiting for seven years for a volunteer Advocate to be his friend. Gary likes to watch wrestling and movies. He also enjoys car rides and visiting local restaurants and coffee shops.

As a friend to someone with a disability you can have a profound effect on their life by reducing loneliness and isolation; helping to achieve hopes and dreams; developing personal networks and relationships; decreasing vulnerability; and increasing self-confidence, mental and physical health.

Join our team of more than 250 volunteer advocates who are enriching the lives of someone in their community. You will gain a wonderful new friendship – someone to share activities that you love. You need to be over the age of 18 and to make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.
