CHAS speakers identify opportunities to engage new audiences in the work of CHAS by arranging and delivering talks. Talks could be to school groups, employees in a local business, a rotary club or any other group of people.
The aim of this role is to raise awareness of CHAS in the local community and to encourage others to get involved in supporting the charity through donating money or time.
You can volunteer on any day of the week, in the morning, afternoon or evening. Ideally you would deliver at least four talks per year.
It’s important to us that you feel happy, safe and confident in your role. As a CHAS volunteer you will be invited to complete a short core learning package that is tailored to your role – your learning will include Representing CHAS, Health and Safety and staying safe when you are working alone. You can choose to learn as part of a group or complete the learning online. The learning won’t take up much time and will equip you with the skills you need to undertake your role safely and confidently.
You will also be invited to attend a Speaker workshop where you will learn more about the role, and annual refreshers so you can be kept up to date with new developments. We are always developing new opportunities for volunteers to learn and offer a range of options for volunteers.
Your local Fundraiser will be your point of contact and will meet with you on a regular basis to provide you with support and guidance. They will also provide you with an induction before you start the role.
We ask that volunteer speakers are aged 18 or over.
We will pay your out of pocket expenses in line with the CHAS volunteer expenses policy.
If you’re interested in the role you can apply online.
