If you're interested in working with a great local charity, engaging with an amazing community, and gaining some valuable skills to put on your CV, FOP Friends is always looking for new volunteers. 

We would love volunteers to get involved with anye of the opportunities listed below. If you're interested, or have any new suggestions, we're keen to hear from you 

Blogger

At present our blogs focus mainly on big events that the FOP community take part in. We would like to produce more regular content to keep the website looking fresh and engaging. Working with a member of the charity, the volunteer will construct a 9 month plan for fortnightly blog posts. These will either focus on upcoming fundraisers or other events in which FOP Friends is participating, or will be on an FOP related topic. The volunteer will then be responsible for compiling the relevant information for event posts or researching the subject area for general interest pieces.  


Specific skills needed: Excellent written communication skills. Creative writing experience desired but not compulsory. Ability to research and communicate a variety of topics. Good time management to ensure content is delivered punctually. 

 


Videographer


We're looking for someone with a keen interesting in videography to create some short videos for FOP Friends, which can be uploaded to our YouTube channel and social media platforms. One idea is listed below, however, new ideas are also very much welcome.


‘A day in the life’ video: At present our blogs focus mainly on big events that the FOP community take part in. We would like to produce more regular content to keep the website looking fresh and engaging. Working with a member of the charity, the volunteer will construct a plan for a series of vlog posts. These will focus on the FOP community to give more insight as to the effects of FOP. The volunteer will then be responsible for compiling the relevant information, creating content, and editing the final videos.  

 

Specific skills needed: Must be fully competent with video editing software. Good time-management and organisational skills are key to ensure the content is completed in time. Confident in speaking to a variety of people. 



Fundraising Assistant 


The volunteer will be expected to plan and execute three fundraising events over the year. They will be required to book the venue and organise the evening. The volunteer will need to promote the events using both online and offline advertising. Examples of events may include bingo nights, pub quizzes or race nights, however, new ideas are always welcome. The volunteer will be expected to work from the office a minimum of once a week and may be asked to complete a selection of admin tasks. They will also work closely with the Grants and Corporate Sponsorship manager to assist with funding applications.

Marketing Assistant


The volunteer will be responsible for raising awareness of the condition FOP, as well as raising the profile of the charity so that we can expand our fundraising efforts outside of friends and family. This can be done using a combination of online and offline marketing to ensure maximum reach. We would love to start a viral campaign like the ALS ice bucket challenge, so this can form a part of the marketing strategy. Offline marketing is to include flyering, by both dropping through post boxes and handing out on the street. The volunteer will be solely responsible for the production and distribution of the leaflets, however guidance regarding design and content will be available from the charity. We would like to feature more in the local press, so the volunteer will be expected to contact radio stations and newspapers in the area to see if we can feature.
