Helping young disabled people learn to cook  with The Wiggly Worm (VG) (Ref: 1616)
 
Opportunity picture
We are what we eat. But it's hard to learn what is best when you have other difficulties to overcome.

Are you interested in food? In particular healthy and nutritional food?! Do you think you could help young people with disabilities learn about cooking?

The Wiggly Worm is running an inclusion project at the National Star College, to support young people age 16-24 by providing them with an opportunity to learn about and cook healthy and nutritional food. They are looking for people to help guide the young cooks, develop their skills and a taste for healthy food.
What are they looking for?

If you have good communication skills and are interested in food and cooking as well as helping young people with disabilities, you could be ideal for this role.
Enthusiasm is good but it should be about offering encouragement, coaching the young person to have a go, rather than doing it for them.
