Contact person

Summary

Association Visitors are trained volunteers who act as a point of contact for people living with motor neurone disease and their families and carers.

Detailed description

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.

About Motor Neurone Disease Assocation - Kings Lynn Group

Run entirely by volunteers we arrange fundraising and awareness raising events in order to respond to local requests for financial support towards equipment or services that statutory services don't provide and, to enhance quality of life for those affected by motor neurone disease (MND). We have two Association Visitors (AV's) who offer practical and emotional support to people living with MND and their families. They attend local clinics and meetings alongside key local health care professionals and provide initial contact and ongoing support with people following diagnosis. We arrange support meetings to enable people with MND and their families to meet each other, although at present these are provided online.
