About Phab Soc
We are a small charity promoting and encouraging people of all abilities to come together on equal terms. We organise fun activities and days out for children and young adults with disabilities from the Nottingham area between the ages of 13-18 (although we will consider applications outside of this age range on a case-by-case basis).
We offer great opportunities for children and young adults to get involved in a wide variety of exciting activities, make new friends and most importantly – have fun! We are firm believers in focussing on individuals’ abilities and helping all our participants to fulfil their potential, whilst supporting them with those things that they may be less able to do. We know that these years are crucial to a child’s development and here at Phab Nottingham we do all we can to build their independence, confidence and self-esteem to support their transition to adulthood.
Our trained student volunteers provide dedicated care and being not dissimilar in age to the children, they are able to act simultaneously as friend and carer. By holding this unique position, they build an incredible rapport with the participants, who grow to see them as both a confidant and a role-model.
Beyond our work with the charity, Phabsoc also run many socials throughout the year and have an IMS netball team!
If you have any questions or are unsure about how to get involved then please email our volunteer liaison officer: Katie Gage (firstname.lastname@example.org)

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
