Are you patient and compassionate with excellent leadership and facilitation skills? Can you engage with a diverse range of service users? Check out this role!

Detailed description

Living with epilepsy can be tough and impact on someone’s everyday life. It can affect independence, relationships, employment and education. Our volunteer-led Talk and Support Groups offer a lifeline for people affected by epilepsy.


At whatever stage someone is at in the epilepsy journey, whether new to the condition or facing a new set of challenges, our Talk and Support Groups are there to help. 


The Cheltenham/Gloucester Group will meet every month at a local community venue in Cheltenham or Gloucester; we need two volunteers to run the group. On completing your induction and training, we’ll work with you to find a suitable venue.  


As well as preparing for and hosting the group every month you will be joining our community of amazing Talk and Support Group volunteers across the UK. They meet virtually every month to keep updated about what’s happening within Epilepsy Action, they support each other and champion people affected by epilepsy. You will also have your own volunteer supervisor who will provide regular support and supervision and be on hand when you need them.


If you live near Cheltenham or Gloucester and are patient, compassionate and can empathise with the challenges people, and their families, face when living with epilepsy why not apply. You will find this is an exciting, sometimes challenging, but hugely rewarding role providing a service that our users rely upon and value.
