PSPA Link Volunteer

Living with a diagnosis of PSP or CBD is life changing and at times families may need support to help them through difficult times. It can put a strain on personal relationships, people's mental health and having someone to talk to about their worries really can make a difference.


Why not be that person, by providing information, practical and emotional support to people living with PSP & CBD and their families in your local community. This support can be face-to-face or via phone.


  • Offer emotional support to people living with affected by PSP & CBD
  • Explain the range of support and services that PSPA can offer
  • Enable people to identify problems as they arise and explore how these might be managed, outlining the sort of options available and how to access them
  • Keep accurate and relevant records in accordance with PSPA's guidelines
  • Attend regular training and development events
  • To be able to work as a team and have the ability to develop and maintain supportive relationships

Skills

  • Empathetic and supportive
  • Effective communicator
  • Reliable
  • Understanding of dealing with sensitive and confidential information

  • Be computer literate, have basic admin skills and be able to travel within your local area


We provide a comprehensive welcome package with all the resources and information you need to cover all aspects or the role.
