Could you be one of our Branch Chairs?
Volunteers play an important role in the MND Association. They help to ensure that people with MND and their families receive the support and services they need.
The local Branches of the Motor Neurone Disease Association are dedicated to providing help and support to people in the area affected by MND including their carers, families and friends. Our aims are to raise funds and increase public awareness of the disease.
The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND. The Association also campaigns and raises awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.
As Branch Chair you have full responsibility for the different activities being undertaken by branch volunteers and to give a sense of continuity to branch work.
We are looking for someone reliable, warm and empathetic with the ability to motivate others. Leadership skills and experience of chairing meetings would be an advantage along with good organisational and listening skills.
This is an excellent opportunity to develop skills and get involved with your local community.
Full training and induction will be provided and travel expenses will be reimbursed.
Ideally this roles requires a commitment of approximately 3-4 hours a week including willingness to attend regular committee meetings.
