Thank you for considering volunteering for Afasic.  There are 6 main areas where there are volunteering opportunities.

Transition to secondary school – if you are looking to volunteer to help with our summer school scheme in 2021, please find out more from our Workshops and learning page.

Fundraising – would be volunteers wishing to raise funds through a variety of means can contact Mark.

Giving us your views – Parents, Young People, Professionals and Others can help us by feeding back comments on our planned or current services. Contact Alison for more information – Alison can be contacted via the Helpline.

Helpline – This is a demanding role and requires a long-term commitment. Previous relevant experience (ideally as a parent) is desirable and extensive initial and ongoing training is provided. For more information, Alison can be contacted via the Helpline.

Local parent networks – any parents interested in being a local contact in their area or setting up an Afasic local facebook group should contact Linda.

Publicity/media – parents or young people interested in telling their story for newspapers, magazines, TV, radio or the Afasic website/newsletter should in the first instance contact Alison on the Helpline for more information.

There are very few volunteering opportunities for working directly with children and young people. When these opportunities do arise a notice will be posted on this website.
