VolunteersVolunteers are regarded as vital members of Equality Together and help to provide a much needed service to the local community.
Volunteers contribute to the work of Equality Together in a number of ways and help us to deliver much needed services to the local community.
There are a number of reasons why you may wish to volunteer – to learn new skills, to share your experience, to make a difference to the community or simply to meet new and interesting people while you work. So if you are interested in the work that we do and think you can make a contribution, we want to hear from you.
Some Volunteer opportunities are short-term, perhaps providing experience to someone wanting to return to work after a period of absence. Others may suit someone retired or unable to work but who still feel they have skills to share. We currently have the following opportunities available within our organisation:
- Demonstration Centre assistant – working at Dockfield Road in the Independent Living Centre
- Driver – delivering equipment to customers
- Gadget Roadshow assistant – running the gadget roadshows
- Events Assistant – helping out at events
Full training is provided. Agreed travel and meal expenses will be reimbursed.
Voluntary Management Board Members
We wish to increase our management board team by appointing people who share an understanding and interest in the issues that affect disabled people. We are looking for people with a direct personal experience of disability.
If you feel that you have relevant skills and experience to offer as a committee member and director of the organisation and you can spare a minimum of 3 hours every four to six weeks to attend meetings, we would like to hear from you.
In the case of both volunteers and voluntary Management Committee members, we are committed to welcoming people from the widest possible diversity of background, culture and experience. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people.
We look forward to hearing from you.
