Volunteers help out with Living with Aphasia

Living with Aphasia is out and about again looking for volunteers!

We were at the Exeter University Volunteer Fair looking for helpers with all of our activities. It was fantastic to see Benita there – she was our volunteer last year for the Sing Aphasia group and her studies means that she can’t make this terms sessions. However, she was keen to help out at the fair and will hopefully be back next term. Thank you Benita!

It was great to recruit some more volunteers – especially as we are planning our 1st anniversary event on May 1st down at the Quayside. A sponsored walk so watch this space!

Always happy to hear from new helpers!

Volunteer Fair – getting involved.

Living with Aphasia was thrilled to join in with the Exeter University Volunteer Fair last week. Thank you Sam, our volunteer from last year, for helping us with the stall and spreading the word. Exeter University Volunteer Fair

We generated lots of interest from students who signed up to our “Volunteer Taster Day”. Students learnt about aphasia and how to create good conversations with people with aphasia using supported conversation techniques.

Afterwards they all stayed to chat to people with aphasia at our Drop In group. Tea and cake eating noted as essential requirements!

Look forward to welcoming our new volunteers – and big thanks you them all for getting involved with people with aphasia.
