We are a victim of our own success! With an ever-increasing membership and lots of activity at international, national and regional levels, the work of the society continues to increase. And we need help.
Members’ Support/Helpline Volunteer
We are looking for a sympathetic person who is a good listener who would like to volunteer their time to help man our helpline. If you would like to make a positive contribution to the work of the society, and you can spare a few hours a week you may like to consider becoming a key member of the team and take telephone calls to the office. You won’t need to be in south Wales as we can route the calls to your mobile or landline at pre-arranged times. You would have to undergo a two-hour training session (we can travel to you for this) and you will have access to a manual that you can refer to. Some of the calls are routine – the most common is about treatment regimens including patients having their injections stopped altogether – some are more specific and some are from medical professionals including doctors and nurses. Unfortunately, some are very distressing.
Member Support Group Coordinator
Member Support Groups are an excellent way to relieve the feeling of isolation that patients feel and they provide the opportunity to hear how others are dealing with their condition.
Consider becoming the coordinator for your area and form your own support group!
