Harvest Project Volunteers for befriending and social group services - Down's Syndrome Association Northern Ireland


The Harvest Project has been set up to reduce isolation and loneliness in older adults with Down's Syndrome and provides support for their carers. We provide a befriending scheme, have social groups across Northern Ireland and organise a residential break for the adults. The social group meets up once a week and different activities are organised every week. The groups have taken part in dance classes, arts and crafts classes, discos and karaoke! The befriending scheme matches the adults with a volunteer and they meet for a few hours every week on a regular basis and they both take part in activities that the adult is interested in, such as going out for coffee, going to the gym etc. Our residential weekend is held once a year, with adults taking part in a range of outdoor pursuits and relaxing activities. Full training is provided to volunteers, with opportunities to take part in further training.
