Description

Awareness and Activities Volunteer

Crohn's and Colitis UK have teams of volunteers based around the country raising awareness of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis- two of the main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). 

Support us in our fight to see a world in which people's lives are not limited by Crohn's and Colitis! 

Join our local team of volunteers where you'll take an active role in planning and delivering one or more of our awareness raising activities to promote our presence and bring people together locally: 

 • organising events, education and information sessions, social activities 

• editing newsletters 

• managing social media pages 

• fundraising 

• campaigning 

The role is very flexible and volunteers can get involved at any time- most activities take place during evenings and weekends but there are opportunities during the day too! All activities, locations and dates are decided by the team of volunteers. 

The team usually organisees 5-10 events throughout the year and you can get involved from as little as 3 hours per month. This is a great opportunity to 

  • be involved in your local community, 
  • enhance and learn new skills such as leadership, event management, communication, and be part of a team who are passionate about making a difference! 
  • Help us organise activities that interest you!

As a taste of what we do, we:

  • Host educational talks given by medical professionals who help keep us up-to-date about the latest developments in IBD.
  • Attend information events to raise awareness about IBD, publicising the role of the Charity with patients and the general public.
  • Meet-up informally in a social space, to relax, welcome new people and build a bigger network in our local area.

Volunteer with us!

We are always keen for new people to join our team. If you are interested in raising awareness and putting on events in the Northern Ireland area.
