TODYS (Teesdale Opportunities for Disabled Youngsters)

TODYS works to support youngsters with a range of of disabilities at youth clubs, social clubs, outings. TODYS is affiliated to MENCAP.

TODYS is a local charity, which was set up almost twenty years ago, in 2000

Volunteering with TODYS is enjoyable & extremely rewarding.

Volunteers are really appreciated by families (TODYS wouldn’t exist without the Volunteers!).

For Youngsters & Young Adults, Thursday evening Hub Clubs are the highlight of their week.
Youngsters look forward to seeing Volunteers & greet them as friends.

We welcome Volunteers from a range of backgrounds, and age groups.

Young volunteers gain valuable experience, confidence & life skills, which set them up for applying for further or higher education & employment.
