Are you a good listener? Caring? Practical? Would you be interested in joining our AV team?
As potentially the most important service the Branch provides, the AV is a crucial and hugely rewarding role. If you think you can provide the much needed guidance and support to people in their hour of need, please do get in touch. Previous experience in the health and social sectors although advantageous, is not necessary.
After a combination of interviews, excellent award winning professional training will be given that encompasses distant learning, teaching and experiential training. Ongoing support and update days will also be provided and all out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.
When you become an AV, you become the linchpin for people living with MND and their carer – being someone they can offload their worries to, to making financial aid requests to the Branch or just being that understanding and ‘informed friend’.
Knowing that you’ve been able to help people through this difficult time, is a hugely humbling experience, being allowed into someone’s home during their journey through MND and helping them through some of the hard decisions and experiences. But you’ll go home knowing you’ve helped someone through a difficult situation.
