Organised and creative? Help us promote our work locally

Marketing / PR volunteer needed for Creative Support in RG1

Our central Reading office is the main hub for our Berkshire services, providing support for adults with mental health needs, learning disabilities and for older adults.

Due to our rapidly expanding services, we are continually developing new promotional materials and informative documents. We are also interested in promoting our presence in the local community through marketing and social media. We have recently launched a new facebook page for Reading that would be a great project for a volunteer to develop.

We are seeking organised and creative individuals who would like to be hands on in developing their skills in media and marketing to create user friendly documents. Our service users greatly enjoy taking part in trips and events, and as a Volunteer Communications Assistant you will be able to promote these to the local community.
