YOUNG people between the ages of 16 and 25 are being sought for a new initiative in the Fens to help people with learning disabilities.
Camelot Foundation funds the Young People Speaking Up charity for the Activ8 project.
Rosie Applin, of Speaking Up, said: "Activ8 combines a bespoke, user-led range of life skills courses with a buddying scheme that unites disabled and non-disabled young people, and establishes a stronger more active rural community.
"We are looking for young people to volunteer for Activ8. Young people should be living in Fenland and aged between 16 and 25.

"Volunteers will 'buddy up' with their young disabled peers and act as mentors, supporting them to gain the confidence and skills to access their local communities."
She said they aimed to support the young volunteers and give them the opportunity to meet and socialise with their young disabled peers, many for the first time.
