We've had many volunteers over the years who have dedicated their free time to support the swimmers at Bubbles, and we simply couldn't run without them! Some come to us to complete Active Citizenship, Duke of Edinburgh, and other extra curricular awards that really boost a CV or UCAS application. Others, like coaches Kate and Lynsey arrive to gain knowledge and experience in their field of work and end up qualifying as teachers and making a career out of it!
Bubbles support our volunteers by providing character and work references, providing routes to teaching qualifications and introducing them to the 'world' of disability and special needs. We're also there to support their own swimming ability!
If you are interested in volunteering some of your time with us, whatever your background, please contact us. You don't even have to have a swimming background! Kate didn't and look where it got her!

Since joining us as a volunteer in 2005, Eve has worked with a huge range of needs and abilities and has also passed many personal milestones....... A-levels.....Turning 18.... Learning to drive.... Going to Uni.... Turning 21....Getting her first job....and of course meeting goats. We wont be happy until she's married, has a house, a baby or two, some adopted goats and finally retires! And even then, she can't leave us!
We love you Eve!
