Job description

Parkinson's UK local groups offer friendship, support, and numerous activities for people affected by Parkinson's.

In North Down, the group is a core part of the local Parkinson's community. Joining as helper means you will be too - meeting new people and building new relationships.

You could be putting the kettle on, to give a warm welcome to new group attendees, or making sure the group activities run smoothly - and all activities are open to you too.

This role is flexible, and can be tweaked to suit the time you have to give. Our staff and existing volunteers will be there to support you every step of the way.

Why we want you

Local groups across the UK are run by volunteers and offer friendship and support to people living with Parkinson's and their families and friends. The friendly faces and warm welcome provided by support group helpers means attendees get the most from the group, with the activities on offer running smoothly.

What you will be doing

  • Welcome new people when they come along to activities for the first time
  • Promote the group and Parkinson's UK in your community
  • Help setting up and clearing up after group meetings - supporting other volunteers during busy periods
  • Assist at events, which may include serving refreshments, handling registrations and raffles
  • Contribute ideas for fundraising, activities and potential speakers

The skills you need

  • Strong administrative, organisational, communication and IT skills to ensure the smooth running of the group.
  • Collaborative and team focused, as you will need to gather and distribute information to everyone involved
  • A positive outlook to make things happen in our local community

What's in it for you

  • You'll make new friends and meet new people, both in the branch and in the local community
  • You'll be making a real difference for people affected by Parkinson's in your community
  • Developing valuable organisational and people skills
  • You'll be part of a movement of people improving the lives of people affected by Parkinson's
