Description

Have you got a passion for creative and fun initiatives? Can you engage and interest others? Can you get behind a good cause? Then this role is for you!

Aphasia, or dysphasia, is a communication difficulty which occurs when the language centres of the brain, usually on the left side, are damaged. It is usually caused by stroke, but can also be caused by brain haemorrhage, head injury or brain tumour. Aphasia affects everyone differently. Some people cannot speak at all, some may have just a few words. Others can no longer read, write or use numbers. 

A life changing disability and at Aphasia Re-Connect we aim to provide a long-term stability through peer support and opportunity, at a time when statutory support is often limited. We aim to underpin this with a vibrant social media and website presence to connect members internally and externally, nationally and Internationally.

Largely voluntarily run, we need to raise funds to cover venue hire and resources to keep these opportunities alive. Have you good ideas for community fundraising? Can you engage others, with and without aphasia, to work with you? Can you organise and execute a plan to raise funds to support our work?

We would be delighted to hear from you!

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:
