The hunt is on for people willing to be trained as volunteers to help at Epilepsy Society’s information point in the adult clinic at Harrogate District Hospital.
Dee Moore, Epilepsy Society’s regional manager, said: Our charity provides information points for people wanting to know more about epilepsy in the hospitals and health centres where neurologists hold their clinics. We work hard to make sure people affected by epilepsy have access to information about the condition and the issues surrounding it.
I would love to hear from anyone who thinks they may be able to help make a difference to local people in need of information. You don’t need knowledge about epilepsy as all volunteers attend a two day training programme. All we ask is that you’re a good listener, keen to help, enjoy meeting people, are happy to learn new skills and can commit to helping Epilepsy Society for at least a few hours a month.
If you can see yourself in this volunteer role, please call me on 07834 655989 or email Dee.Moore@epilepsysociety.org.uk for more information or a volunteer application pack. We really do need your help and the new skills you learn may help in other areas of life!
