Community-based Volunteering

You may extend support as resource persons, trainers, facilitators, documenters or sign language interpreters in skills training or workshops of persons with disabilities; job coaches and mentors; assessment of person with disability beneficiaries; program or activity hosts; gift giving and medical and dental mission sponsors. You may also adopt one of our communities or groups of persons with disabilities and support their community-based livelihoods.

Cheshire International Internship Programme (CHIIPS)

If you or your organization believes that your skills and experience will be of benefit to LCDPF and are willing to share your time to help persons with disabilities in the Philippines, then you may consider becoming a volunteer or partner. If you are a UK national, you can partake in our formal Cheshire International Internship Programme (CHIIPS), where volunteers are placed in therapeutic or development/office-based positions for a fixed period of time (usually around 6 months). Community-based volunteers who usually undertake basic therapeutic and inclusive education trainings – even those who do not have previous medical or therapy-based experiences – are also very welcome to join. Most of our community-based volunteers are parents, teachers or administrators who have a strong willingness to help others in their community.
