Volunteer with us

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of the Local Diabetes Support Group? The group is well established, but looking for new people to contribute to future developments. We would welcome ideas and discussions with people locally, whether they have diabetes or not. You may be looking for experience to add to your CV, a chance to make a contribution to your community, you might want to meet new people or to use the skills you have.  Please get in touch (using the 'Contact Us' page) and let us tell you about our organisation and listen to what you have to contribute. We are looking for volunteers to help with the following things:-


We have now planned an exciting new programme and will be releasing details soon.  We want to find people to help us deliver this programme.  We need someone who would enjoy organising events, someone to help with marketing and publicity of events and people who are happy to help at the event.  You don’t have to have connections to diabetes just some enthusiasm and energy and be willing to learn alongside us.


We are still looking for someone to lead our committee – to be the main contact person for the group, to organise our committee meetings and help be the face of the local group.  We share the chairing of meetings so you don’t need those skills particularly.  We are there to help and support anyone interested in the post.   


Part of our work is contacting new groups and raising awareness of diabetes.  We need people to do some research for us.  You don’t need to come to meetings just be computer literate and happy to spend a bit of time contacting people for us.
