ORGANIZATION: Crohn's & Colitis UK

Crohn's and Colitis UK

Crohn’s and Colitis UK have teams of volunteers based around the country raising awareness of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis - two of the main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Support us in our fight to see a world in which people’s lives are not limited by Crohn’s and Colitis!

Join our local team of volunteers where you’ll take an active role in planning and delivering one or more of our awareness raising activities to promote our presence and bring people together locally:
- organising events, education and information sessions, social activities
- editing newsletters
- managing social media pages
- fundraising
- campaigning

The role is very flexible and volunteers can get involved at any time - most activities take place during evenings and weekends but there are opportunities during the day too! All activities, locations and dates are decided by the team of volunteers. The team usually organise 5-10 events throughout the year and you can get involved from as little as 3 hours a month or more.

This is a great opportunity to be involved in your local community, enhance and learn new skills such as leadership, event management, communication, and be part of a team who are passionate about making a difference! Help us organise activities that interest you!

Description

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis - two of the main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (or IBD), affect more than 300,000 people in the UK. Yet it is largely a hidden disease, and one that causes stigma, fear and isolation. We’re the UK’s leading charity in the battle against Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Our mission is to work with all those affected by these conditions to achieve a better quality of life, improve services, and ultimately find a cure. We want to see a world in which people’s lives are not limited by Crohn’s and Colitis.
