Dundee and Angus ADHD Support Group was set up 3 years ago by a parent who saw that there were no support groups for parents of children with ADHD. The main aim of the group is to help raise awareness of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
One year ago, we opened a charity shop to allow the young people that we work with to learn new life skills that they can then take forward into adulthood. The shop has been a great success and now we need more volunteers to help run it. If you have even 1-2 hours a week that you could help, then we would love to hear from you.
You'll have an interest in Dundee and Angus ADHD Support Group and the work that we do, as well as the enthusiasm to represent both of us and our values locally. You will understand the needs of people affected by ADHD in your area. You'll be a good organiser with plenty of creative ideas, preferably with fundraising, sales or event management experience.
Our roles are flexible and aim to fit around you. Time commitments for this role may vary depending on the number and type of fundraising activities arranged, but there are no set requirements. You will need time to plan and attend a series of fundraising activities and events throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to gain experience within a local charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones. We need you to help make positive changes to the lives of people affected by ADHD.
This is an excellent opportunity to build new skills while making a difference to others.
Youth Workers will be required to help young people during activities and outings within the group, assess the needs of the young people during the session, support young people to facilitate personal and social growth to encourage greater social inclusion, and attend training and development opportunities as provided by the group alongside team meetings when necessary.
