Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) support National Citizen Service (NCS) The Challenge Network in Birmingham who offer short courses to young adults aged 17 years-old. NCS offer a 3-4 week experience that helps build a young person and their confidence to better prepare them for life. They get to live away from home, develop skills and meet amazing people. Included in the course is a three day placement at a charity organisation like ourselves, where they get to work with disabled adults, develop their work experience, enhance their communication skills and organise events. 
Today was my second day volunteering at Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) and it’s been another great day. The centre was very busy with lots of familiar faces who were here to enjoy the fun activities on offer today. This morning I was able to sit in on and observe a music session held for the service users, it was another very interesting experience and an opportunity to get to know everyone here at CPM a little better. The music group often sing and play music and are working on a musical production.  
 
Today was my first day volunteering at Cerebral Palsy Midlands and it has been a really positive experience. I have really enjoyed getting to know the amazing service users and staff and finding out about some of the great activities that take place here. Today I also had the opportunity to observe and take part in a Tai-Chi session with some of the service users, which was fantastic. I really enjoyed the session and got to see service users with varying degrees of physical ability engaging with and really enjoying the activity.
