SummaryAssociation Visitors are trained volunteers who act as a point of contact for people living with motor neurone disease and their families and carers.
As an Association Visitor, you will keep in regular contact with people with MND, their families and carers. This can be done either by phone, email or face-to-face visits, depending on what suits you and the family. By offering confidential emotional support, accurate information and help to access the right services and equipment, you can enable people affected by MND to live their life more easily and make informed choices. Thorough and on-going training and support is provided for you by the MND Association.
As an AV you can further develop existing skills in your personal and professional life, such as listening, empathy, tact, sensitivity and dealing with a wide range of people from all backgrounds. You will benefit from working as part of a team, while at the same time being able to manage your own schedule. You can work the role around your existing commitments, whether that's family,
studies, work or all three. Many Association Visitors love the role they do because it is so flexible and can be easily adapted to their individual lifestyle.
