We are looking for two passionate, dynamic, creative people to join us. Could you be our helping hand, shining light………

We are a small upcoming charity that support adults living with epilepsy alongside their family friends and carers.

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions in the world and there are over 600,000 people in the UK with a known diagnosis of epilepsy. That’s about 1 in 103 people. In every week over 600 people are given an epilepsy diagnosis; that’s 87 each and every day. Shockingly, there are 21 epilepsy-related deaths every week in the UK.

We provide a holistic approach in being there for our amazing and courageous young and older adults through provision of monitor equipment and well-being support. We aim to achieve this by raising awareness, providing support and reducing stigma.

We are based in the Keighley area of Bradford but offer support throughout the UK.

We are presently looking to fill two roles:

  • A social media volunteer who could help with the following:

Preparing a social media strategy and implementing it, regular posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, increasing the followers’ numbers and engagement with the charity. Our aim is to raise awareness and also much needed donations. So if you have social media/digital marketing experience, please apply!

  • Volunteer Secretary To The Board of Trustees

Your role as Secretary to the Board of Trustees will be important in assisting the smooth running of the PDF Board of Trustees to lead strategy and oversight. As Secretary to the Board of Trustees, you will lead the administration for the Board, including preparing and circulating agendas and minutes of Board Meetings, Sub Committees, and the Annual General Meeting. The Secretary also provides advice and support on the governance within the organisation.

We are looking for people who can bring energy, passion and drive to help us achieve our mission and ensure the charity is effectively governed and managed.

We particularly encourage applications from people with disabilities and people from ethnic-minority groups to align with our goal of ensuring representation from the communities and people that we serve. An understanding of people living with epilepsy is desirable but not essential.

If you are interested in applying for these volunteer positions or have any further questions about the role please email info@peterdoodyfoundation.org for an application form or contact Joanne on 078865 629626 for an informal chat.

Closing date: 31st January 2022
