Employment & Volunteering

Volunteer Roles

We have a wide range of volunteer roles available.  Our main focus is on providing volunteer opportunities for adults with DMD but anyone is welcome to volunteer with us.  All our volunteers have access to full induction and ongoing training to support them in their role.  Some of these roles are quite new and you will play an active role in helping to develop the opportunity and bring others on board. To apply for any of these roles contact us on Facebook or at info@DMDPathfinders.org.uk

Social Media Volunteer

Our social media volunteers create and share social media content, committing to a couple of hours each week to manage our social media output.

Finance/membership volunteer

There is an opportunity for a volunteer to help us with logging transactions, recruiting new members and keeping our administrative records up-to-date.

Newsletter editors/journalists

We have several opportunities for volunteers to help compile the monthly DMD Pathfinders newsletter. This will include researching stories, interviewing people about DMD and writing up content.

Campaign ambassadors

We have several opportunities for volunteers to become campaign ambassadors, who will attend meetings and events, and run outreach sessions to promote DMD Pathfinders and share information and advice. Ambassadors will also take on specific campaigns identified by DMD Pathfinders members and lobby for change.

Fundraising volunteers

Our fundraising volunteers help raise the money that allows us to keep doing our important work.  Some carry out sponsored challenges, some organise fundraising events (like quiz nights or comedy nights) that help raise awareness as well as funds, and some help find corporate sponsorship opportunities.
