At Real Life Options we champion the everyday choices of the people we support. Our Real Life volunteers are vital in supporting this aim, helping to provide greater control to the people we support through community, activity or driver volunteering.
Our volunteers help provide responsive, person-centred support for people with learning and physical disabilities, autism, complex needs and behaviours that challenge. Through their help we are able to offer people pathways to independence and healthy lifestyles, within their own communities.
Could you offer some time to make a real difference to people’s lives? Do you have good communication skills (verbal and non-verbal) and a friendly personality?
As a Real Life Volunteer, you’ll receive a first class induction, on-going training and expenses paid whilst gaining new skills, meeting amazing people and feeling great satisfaction from making a positive difference to people’s lives.

“I enjoy my volunteering experience as it gives me a sense of enjoyment working with the people we support and other Real Life Options staff. It’s great to see people enjoy their time at the Centre and leave happy at the end of the day.” Connor – An-Carina, West Lothian.
