Shropshire Disability Network is a local registered charity run in its entirety by volunteers.
Note we have no premises, all our volunteers work from home but you will receive support from experienced volunteers and contact.
In return we can give you a reference should you be looking for paid work. If you are passionate about helping people of all ages with a disability and/or carers then you will find this role very rewarding.
We are looking for volunteers who will help us at Bucket Collections, Coffee Mornings, Table Top Sales in Telford, Shrewsbury, Oswestry and surrounding areas. You will give help to a Fundraising Sub Group that is being formed.
We get no Local or National Government funding but need about £10.000 a year to function. Our members are supportive but many have disabilities so we need people who are able to assist by setting up etc at our events and generally helping.
Set up and dismantle at Awareness and Fundraising events plus help at the events. There are no regular hours, it is ad hoc.
In return we can offer a reference if looking for paid work. If you enjoy working with other people and having fun< while helping a small local charity this is the role for you. You will always work with other people. If you are passionate about people with a disability and or carers, this role could be very rewarding.
All volunteers are insured when they help at our events. We offer a reference and can pay reasonable out of pocket expenses.
This opportunity will suit young people at college or university. People who have retired and are looking for something to do but also anyone who would like to help out at occasional or regular events throughout the county of Shropshire.
