Want to make a real difference with a volunteering placement abroad? Then why not spend your gap year working with children and young adults with special educational needs? Like many children in the UK, disabled children who live abroad are often at a disadvantage and need that little bit of extra help and support from dedicated volunteers. This is your chance to see the world and do some good!

You'll make a valuable contribution by working one-on- one with disabled children, teaching classes, and helping with therapy sessions, rehabilitation and recreational activities that will improve the quality of life for young people with special education needs. It's a great way to make a difference!
