Volunteering your time or skills is one of the best gifts you can give. Our fantastic volunteers provide invaluable support to our students and staff through a variety of roles and activities.
Whether you can spare a few hours a week or a few times a year, becoming a volunteer is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and gain experience.
We provide thorough induction training and support, and for many of our volunteering opportunities, you won’t need any previous qualifications or experience.
Each story is unique and by becoming a media volunteer, you will be giving support to others living with the condition.
Your experience, whether positive or negative,will help raise awareness of epilepsy and our work with the media, on our website and in our publications. It could be care from the NHS, at work, at school or any other aspect of living with epilepsy as young person or parent of a child with epilepsy.
Anything you email to us is strictly confidential - we will be in touch as soon as we find a media opportunity that would work well with your story.
You’ll part of a dedicated team organising and planning an event. You don’t need any previous experience, just have fun and mingle with people from your community – it’s also great for the CV too!
This could be as simple as organising a tea party or perhaps a fundraising event such as a ‘race night’.
All you need is time, enthusiasm and good communication skills as well as knowledge of your local area. You’ll receive top class support from the fundraising team to help you every step of the way.
Even just managing a collection box in your local community would help us greatly. You would only need to empty, count and record amounts of the box you manage.
Raising awareness could be as simple delivering speeches and presentations about our work to a variety of audiences, from school assemblies to local community groups.
Alternatively, you can help us spread the word about our fundraising events, for example on your website, blogs and social media profiles or by distributing flyers, so that as many people as possible have the chance to take part!
