The following ‘Ambassador’ roles are available:
Speaking at groups, clubs and associations is a key objective in further promoting the work of Allergy UK. We are looking for individuals to help educate others about our work and engae with audiences . You will have responsibility to arrange speaking opportunities within an agreed area. This role can easily be home based or if you live close to Sidcup, office based.
Every allergy sufferer knows that having allergies can be very frightening and at times a lonely experience especially when you or your child has just been diagnosed. To be able to pick up the telephone and speak to a support buddy who knows what you have been through and can give practical tips on everyday management, can be a real boost. Support buddies do not give medical advice.
It is the policy of Allergy UK for all volunteers to complete an application form; your details will be kept on our database and will be treated as confidential. We will not disclose them to any other organisation.
We ask our volunteers to supply names of two referees, these should be people who are not related to you and know you well. You should be aware that we will ask these people to provide a reference on your behalf.
