Voice Banking Volunteers
Would you like to under take a volunteer role that involves direct contact with people living with MND? Do you have good IT skills? Are you able to encourage and support people to use technology? Then you could become one of our Voice Banking Volunteers!
What is voice banking?
More than 80% of people with MND will develop communication issues during their illness.
Voice banking is a process that allows a person to record a set list of phrases with their own voice. When the person is no longer able to use their own voice, they can use the recorded voice with communication aids to generate an infinite number of words and sentences. The voice created will be not be a perfect replica of the person’s natural speech, but should resemble it.
What is the voice banking project?
The voice banking project aims to provide the information and practical support as early as possible after diagnosis so that a person with MND has the best opportunity to bank their voice if they wish. Voice Banking Volunteers will be an essential part of this project. Early in 2018, we're starting a 6 month pilot of this role and we are recruiting for Voice Banking Volunteers in the following areas:
- North West London
