A SCOTTISH charity will help people with learning disabilities get involved in Glasgow 2014.

Enable Scotland is to help people looking to volunteer at the Commonwealth Games.

Trained staff can help potential volunteers use the charity's computers in a variety of locations across Scotland, and can provide practical support to complete the online forms.

The charity has also pledged to support any successful candidates that they have helped, right through until the completion of the Games in 2014.

Games organisers are looking to recruit 15,000 people to help run the sporting extravaganza between July 23 and August 3, next year.

Everyone is invited to fill in an application form, and no previous experience is required as training is given.

Michael Lacy, business manager for Enable Scotland, said: "Volunteering can be a very enjoyable and rewarding activity, even more so through a huge international sporting event.

"A truly life changing experience.

"We have all heard many positive stories from the volunteers at the London 2012 Olympics.

"As in London 2012, the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is an opportunity for volunteers to learn new skills, meet many interesting people from different countries, make new friends and to have great fun doing so.

"Enable Scotland has vast first hand experience in the benefits of volunteering.

"If you have ever considered volunteering then what better way to start than through such a massive event taking place right here in Glasgow."
