Our Volunteering Strategy - your chance to get involved

As part of our ongoing commitment to volunteers, we're in the process of developing our 2016-2019 Volunteering Strategy. This will set out how we intend to support our volunteers - and ultimately people with and affected by MS - over the next four years.

Over the last few months we’ve gathered information about volunteering from staff and volunteers across the organisation. These findings have produced a number of key themes and recommendations.

  1. Find out about the key themes and recommendations for the Volunteering Strategy

We want to hear from you about these recommendations; as volunteers, your input and feedback is vital to ensure we get the Volunteering Strategy right.

We’d particularly like to hear your views in relation to the following questions:

  • Do the key themes and general approach feel right?
  • Is there anything missing?
  • Do you have any suggestions which you feel will help us write and deliver the strategy?

There are lots of ways to share your opinions and feedback. You can:

Attend a workshop

We will be holding a series of face to face workshops throughout the UK. To ensure that everyone is able to participate fully in these sessions, we are limiting numbers to around 20 per session.

  1. Find out about your nearest workshop

Join a phone and video conference

Our phone and video conferences will enable you to join other volunteers in a discussion about Volunteering Strategy recommendations without the need to travel. These conferences will be shorter than the workshops and timings will be determined by volunteer preferences. You can join a phone and video conference on one of these dates:

  1. Thursday 14 April
  2. Monday 18 April
  3. Friday 22 April
  4. Monday 25 April

Write or speak to us

If you can’t make one of our workshops, or phone and video conferences, we welcome you to share your opinions via email, letter or 1-1 phone conversation between 11th and 29th April.
