SummaryDo you have good listening skills?

We are looking for Support volunteers (Association Visitors) who can provide friendship, information and support to people living with and affected by MND.
Volunteers play an important role in the MND Association. They help to ensure that people with MND and their families receive the support and services they need.
This rewarding role is flexible and can fit in around your other commitments. Full training is provided and all out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.
MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles refuse to work. It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breath. It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis, and it has no cure.
The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
