Ask a question
Volunteering for Afasic is one of the best ways that you can help children and young people with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). To help you do this, as an Afasic volunteer, you can sign up for a single Activity or build your own personal portfolio by amalgamating a range of Volunteer Activities and build your own unique volunteering role that meets your needs, interests or skills.
For all Activities you, the volunteer, will remain in control of your commitment.
The Activities are grouped in Teams according to the type of volunteering undertaken. As a Parent/Carer you are free to select Activities from one or a combination of all four Teams. If you are not a parent/carer you will not be eligible to register for any of the Activities in the Parent Team. However the Activities in this Team are replicated in the Universal and Professional Team and you are encouraged to make your selection there.
Please note: most of our volunteering opportunities does not involve working directly with children and young people.
