Regional Charity Champion

As a Regional Charity Champion, you will be the vital link between Deafblind UK and your local community. You will champion and advocate the work and services that Deafblind UK offers and raise awareness of dual sensory loss engaging with local groups and organisations. The commitment and skills of our volunteer family enable us to reach out to those in our far-flung communities whose lives could potentially be transformed by our support. Your knowledge of your own local area will help us to impact and support those adapting to, and living with, a dual sensory loss.

What’s involved?

Raise awareness of dual sensory loss, and Deafblind UK, within your local community by:

  • Attending public events
  • Doing talks to local community groups
  • Engaging with local businesses and groups
  • Circulating information and materials within your local community

What times do I need to commit to?

This is a flexible role which can differ for each volunteer depending on your strengths and experience.

Am I suitable?

We are looking for volunteers who are confident, outgoing people who can take the initiative and are eager to make a difference in their local area. You might have had some experience in public speaking, advocating or simply feel passionately about our cause.

How will I benefit?

By volunteering with us, you will:

  • Get opportunities to meet like-minded people in your community
  • Be part of a friendly and dedicated team
  • Have satisfaction of knowing you will be making a difference to real people’s lives
  • Improve your communications skills
  • Gain positive employability skills to help you in your career path

What support will I get?

We ensure all volunteers who join our team are well equipped to undertake any tasks and will provide training and supervision throughout your journey with us. Any specific training will be outlined within your onboarding and induction stages and then discussed at your reviews with your named lead contact. We will be behind you every step of the way offering support, training and guidance!

This role is purely voluntary, and this arrangement is not meant to be a legally binding one or an employment contract.
