Over the next two years the Support Volunteer Project will be looking at how the Association could provide even bigger, better volunteer support for people affected by MND.
That could mean:
- Growing our network, especially in areas with few volunteers.
- Looking at new volunteer roles or looking again at roles which have been trialed locally.
- Exploring new ways of volunteering.
- Further improving the Association Visitor service, including learning from local best practice.
As the project kicks off, we are keen to hear your ideas for improvements (big or small). And every suggestion you make will receive a response.
For more information about the Support Volunteer Project and how to give us your ideas please see www.mndassociation.org/supportvolproject.
