An organisation run by disabled people for disabled people is offering a chance to find out more about coaching and mentoring opportunities available in Sheffield.

Disability Sheffield is hosting its final training session of the year at the The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane in the city centre on Tuesday, from 1.30pm.

The free event is aimed at disabled people who employ personal assistants to help them with daily tasks, as well giving anyone with an interest in working in the support sector a chance to find out more.

The first half of the session aims to highlight the range of help and support which is available through Disability Sheffield .

The second part is for anyone interested in employing, or pursuing a career as a personal assistant.

Tess Daly, peer coaching and mentoring project co-ordinator at Disability Sheffield said: “We are looking for people who are willing to listen, think openly about things and who will take on board what others say.

“We are here to guide, not teach, and the workshop offers an opportunity to anyone thinking about mentoring to find out more.”

It will be followed by the organisation’s regular drop-in session where any issues and concerns will be discussed between 2.30pm and 4pm.
