Ref: V124 | Voluntary Group Committee Member | Milford on Sea, Lymington Hampshire, SO41 0PH

We are looking for 2 or 3 Voluntary Group Committee members over the age of 18 years old, to take a role in coordinating the membership and secretarial duties and facilitating the group programme and activities. This group is based at Milford on Sea Community Centre, 9 Sea Road, Milford on Sea, Hampshire SO41 0PH.

We’re a fairly newly re-established group who are looking for people to join the committee to help run the group and support members.

We provide all of our volunteers with training so you feel confident in the role and give the best possible support to stroke survivors.

As part of the group committee you would work alongside the chairman and treasurer to support the organisation and running of the group. The group will work together to develop roles on their committees that suit the needs of the group and match the skills of those people offering support. A committee member could for example:

  • Help support Chair with other tasks that ensure the smooth running of the group.
  • Help manage the membership forms
  • Act as programme coordinator, working with members to identify their choice of activities and supporting the implementation
  • Meet and greet group members, and helping them feel supported
  • Act as the Health and Safety officer for the group if required.
  • Be responsible for inducting new volunteers into the group.
  • Provide refreshments
  • Promote My Stroke Guide to the group members.

The volunteers will:

  • Need to be a great communicator, and have good organisational and administrative skills.
  • Have a friendly and welcoming attitude, and the ability to motivate people and make them feel comfortable.
  • Be good at working in a group setting and able to get things done for the good of the group.
  • Enjoy helping to organise local community groups and activities and offering your skills where needed.

If you enjoy helping to organise local group community groups and activities and offering your skills where needed, then this might be a good role for you!

A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is required for this role.

About Us

Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.

We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.

We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.

We’re working to improve the diversity of our team.  Because we know that individuality leads to a richer experience for our people and better support for those affected by stroke. 

We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. And we’re particularly looking to increase the number of applications from those with lived experience of stroke and those from under-represented communities. 

Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.

In 2019, we developed a bold new corporate strategy so that we can rebuild more lives after stroke and make a bigger difference to people’s lives.  

To help us deliver our strategy and make a real difference, we are looking to recruit talented people to a number of new roles.

If you would like to support stroke survivors to rebuild their lives, we want to hear from you!
