Use your skills to help us empower people to “have their say” about the support and services they need

Research volunteers needed for SEAP Advocacy

ADMINISTRATIVE AND RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Are you looking for further administrative experience?
Do you want to use your administrative and other skills to support seAp in empowering people to “have their say” about the support and services they need.?

We need enthusiastic, reliable people to do any of the following:
– Produce a regular newsletter for our volunteers and supporters
– Collate information about our publicity, networking, and contacts made
– Research barriers any particular group in the community finds in accessing health services and advocacy, and collect feedback about our service.
– Check the new referrals on our database and contact referrers as necessary for further details and consent forms.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
The post is home-based – except for meetings, training and catch-ups which will be local or occasionally elsewhere in Berkshire. Reasonable travel expenses are paid. We have occasional use of offices in Reading, Newbury and Windsor, and also make use of locations in the community in Bracknell and Wokingham.

We need people able to commit half to two days a week for a minimum of six months. Reasonable travel expenses are paid.

You would need to have a computer and internet at home or easy access to it elsewhere. You will need to be competent in use of computer, Microsoft packages, and general administrative tasks, and able to work predominately on your own, though there is support available from the volunteer organizer.

We are looking for enthusiastic capable volunteers to join our team, and especially welcome those who have themselves experienced health or social care services.
