North Lanarkshire Project

What can the project offer me or someone I am working with?

North Lanarkshire Project works with adults over 16, resident in North Lanarkshire, who identify as disabled or a carer, to learn new skills such as literacy or digital skills. We have a great team of volunteers who can support learners one to one. We also offer support to small groups at local accessible community venues. Our services are free, person centred and confidential.

One learners experience with Lead Scotland – After Andy had a stroke he found leaving the house difficult and was reliant on his partner for support.  Andy was supported by Lead within his own home to develop digital skills, which allowed him to connect with the outside world and over time his confidence grew. He now volunteers for a local men’s group and is a member of Friends of Lead North Lanarkshire which was set up in 2011 to raise money and support Lead’s work in the local area and generate closer ties with the community. Andy said, “If it wasn’t for Lead, I wouldn’t be here. I got involved in the Friends of Lead North Lanarkshire group through a family member and have gained so much from being part of the group”.

How can I volunteer to support this project?

We are always looking for more volunteers to support our projects. We have a range of roles that can suit your available time and experience. We can provide training, out of pocket expenses and opportunities to our volunteers which are as fulfilling as they are rewarding. Please email Gail at gphillips@lead.org.uk  for an informal chat and a starter pack. For more information please see our volunteering page.
