Volunteering at New Chapters
New Chapters from Langdon is a business that sells second-hand books online – with a difference.
Those who work at New Chapters are Langdon members with learning disabilities. This is usually their first step into the world of work. They learn the importance of punctuality, responsibility, hard work, and interacting within the social nature of the workplace – all skills that people in work need.
From here they gain the experience, the confidence and the self-esteem that allows them to move on to working outside the Langdon community, and to extend their independence in all aspects of their lives.
Four Sixth Formers support this work through visits to the centre every week.
Weekly for half the year.
