General Volunteering, including social media work
We are always interested to hear from anyone interested in volunteering with us on a regular basis. Please get in touch to discuss what skills, experience and time you have to offer. We are also currently interested in anyone able to help with our social media platforms.
York Disability Rights Forum Volunteer
In this role, you will help us in our work with the newly established York Disability Rights Forum. We are looking ideally for a volunteer who expects to be able to be a part of the project for around one year. Typical activities will be to help organise meetings (including enabling attendees to participate from home); assist in sending out information, invitations, and surveys; publicise the forum and events; contact potential guest speakers, etc.
Community Voices Volunteers
Community Voices is a project sponsored by City of York Council. It seeks to engage with members of the community whose views and experiences are often overlooked or go unheard. This year we are focusing on marginalised voices in the disability community in York. Understanding of the issues and barriers faced by disabled people is important to this role and we welcome applications from disabled students. You will gain experience of collecting and analysing information, producing infographics and designing social media posts and campaigns. We would like to recruit volunteers who will be able to be involved throughout 2021, with a minimum commitment of 8 hours a month.
Young People’s Indicator Report Volunteer
We are delighted to be supporting York Youth Council in putting together a report that reflects the human rights priorities of young people in the city. We currently have two volunteers working on this. Get in touch for more details.
