We are looking for volunteers to assist us to
share key knowledge, awareness and advice with elderly/disability community
groups. The volunteers will be spreading the word and providing advice about
key equipment that can dramatically assist to improve the lives of those living
There is so much equipment out there that can help people improve their day to day lives. Volunteers will play a vital role in explaining to local community groups what equipment is out there and where to get it.

Start Date: 23/05/2019
End Date: 23/05/2020
As a volunteer you decide when you volunteer and what talks you want to go on so it’s very flexible all we ask is for a minimum of two talks a month. So great for people that work full-time, stay at home parents, retired and unemployed as a lot of talks are during the day so people that are retired or out of work are great. But it’s very flexible as it’s not a set time to come in every week.
