We initially started some six years ago now, creating this amazing holiday centre for disabled and special need guests and their family, carers and teachers. During this time we have hosted 900+ volunteers from ALL over the world, who between them have helped create this wonderful place. Some stayed for a few weeks, some months and others even longer. Many have returned for second and third visits and so many have become amazing friends.
Now we are slowly starting to accept guests and we are requiring a few select volunteers who are willing to assist with the daily running of our wonderful holiday complex.
We have two volunteers rooms that can each accommodate two or possibly three volunteers of the same gender. Each room has an en-suite bathroom and air conditioning; we also supply FREE WIFI, bedding towels etc. You can prepare your own breakfast and lunch is prepared for you and there are snack type foods available for you to share in the evening.
Each volunteer is expected to assist for 6 hours a day and 5 out of every 7 days, leaving 2 days each week free to explore the area and the sunny Algarve. We can only accept serious volunteers who are willing to commit to 28 Days OR LONGER as it really helps us not to have to train new volunteers all the time.
We have started to build up a good selection of animals in our zoo area and always need volunteers to help with their up keep and feeding. The many garden areas constantly require maintaining, which will involve weeding, planting and tidying and other areas like the pool and patios always need attention and sweeping. These are the typical tasks that we need help with. If you can also take care of light maintenance tasks or maybe painting this could also be of interest to us!
PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO VOLUNTEER TASKS WHICH INVOLVE BEING RESPONSIBLE OR CARING, TEACHING OR LOOKING AFTER OUR GUESTS "DUE TO LEGAL REASONS" YOU MAY BE ABLE TO ASSIST PARENTS, TEACHERS OR CARERS, IF THEY ASK FOR HELP AND THERE IS NO RISK INVOLVED TO YOU OR THE CHILDREN OR ADULT.
This specialist holiday centre is funded by the “24x7 special needs Holiday Trust” and is a UK registered charity, so we cannot afford any time wasters, so please only apply if you feel that you can assist us with our on going adventure and enjoy yourself along the way.
PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO "I" IN TEAM AND A GREAT TEAM IS ALWAYS WHO WE WORK WITH HERE.
