Volunteer with Us


Living with Aphasia is run by people with aphasia for people with aphasia – plus some wonderful volunteers.

volunteers

Volunteers are very important to us and we warmly welcome newcomers. A volunteer contributes to the smooth running of our activities. They can help in other ways too, such as fundraising, social media management or administration. If you’re over 18 and keen to support people living with aphasia there’s lots of things you can get involved in;

  • Digital Support– If you’ve got skills in social media or website management we’d love to hear from you.
  • Fundraising / Sponsorship – We survive by generous donations and fundraising so if you’d like to get involved in a fundraising event we want to hear from you! All voluntary work is appreciated and should by no means feel obligatory.

Training opportunities

As a volunteer you will learn how to create good conversations with people with aphasia. We run a short induction session when you start. You can also access Communication with Aphasia training through the Speech and Language Therapy department at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital.

We’d love to meet you!
