We need volunteers!

November 25th, 2015

We are particularly interested in current or retired teachers, occupational therapists and physiotherapists.  We also need experienced admin support volunteers.

So if you have a few hours spare and want to help contribute to our innovative work please get in touch for an informal chat.

All volunteers will receive an in-depth induction, training appropriate to their role and ongoing support and development to ensure that their volunteering is a positive experience.

If you are interested in continuing to use your knowledge, skills and experience, want to give something back to the community or even to increase your employability prospects please email Ann at ann@matrixnurological.org.uk
