Let’s Get Connected

Welcome to the ‘Let’s Get Connected’ section of the Volunteer Zone.

We know how important it is for all of us to work together to make a difference for people with MND, their families and carers. In order for us to do this, it’s important for us to communicate effectively and stay connected with one another.

Volunteer Zone iconBlogs and vlogs
Blogs (text) and vlogs (video) provide an insight into the thoughts and activities of the author – like a personal journal.  We plan to feature staff and volunteer blogs and vlogs here to help share information and stay connected.  If you would like to suggest a topic for a future blog/vlog or if you would like to write or record your own, please contact the Volunteering Team.  For guidance on recording a vlog, click here.

Volunteer Zone iconVolunteers Forum
We provide a number of opportunities for you to meet with other volunteers and share your experience e.g. spring conferences, regional workshops, forums and our annual conference, as well as sharing your stories in The News and Thumb Print, however we recognise that there is a much wider wealth of information that could be shared between you.

Here you can access our volunteers forum which enables you to connect with other volunteers from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to share ‘what works’, whether that be for you individually in your volunteering role, or for your branch or group.

The forum is currently offline – we will let you know when it’s back online via The News
