Bring your talents to our team and help us raise awareness

Coordination / Projects volunteers needed for Crohn’s and Colitis UK – Berkshire Local Network

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).

Join our Berkshire team and take an active role in planning and delivering one or more of our awareness raising activities:

  • Organising events, education and information sessions, social activities
  • editing newsletters
  • managing social media pages
  • fundraising
  • campaigning.

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!

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