Helping those with Disabilities

Disability and Special Needs Volunteer Projects

Do you have a passion for those living with disabilities? Love Volunteers exciting Special Needs Care projects around the world welcome international volunteers wishing to a make a difference in the lives of those who are often overlooked.

Whether it be working with the physically disabled, the mentally challenged, or those with learning difficulties and impairments to sight or hearing, we have a project that will not only suit your interests, but will provide you with an opportunity to make a real and lasting contribution.

While these highly rewarding projects do not require participants to have a background in the field of special needs care, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests.

As with all of our voluntary service programs, you will have the opportunity to meet and socialize with fellow volunteers from all over the world. Not only will you make a real contribution to your chosen project, but you will get to travel and explore a new country, as well as make new friends for life!

Join us on one of our safe, fun and affordable Special Needs Care Projects below and be part of something great!
