Volunteer Opportunities

Fibro Active

There is life with Fibro and to help us sustain the group we give members the opportunity to use their skills and experience when they feel ready to:

Become a Mental Health Champion

Mental Health Champions are trained by the mhfa. The course is two days spread over two weeks and you are given the resources and knowledge to help support and signpost group members to the appropriate mental health services. This role requires a regular attendance at group meetings, attendance at Erewash Mental Health Partnership events and some light paperwork on request.

Be part of the fundraising team

We encourage as many people to get involved with fundraising as possible. We have members on the front line who attend the events, set up and sell tombola tickets, raffles and cakes etc but we also need the help behind the scenes making, donating and collecting prizes.

Each event we attend we timetable manageable time slots so that it keeps it enjoyable for members to help us.

We need stewards and car park marshals for our annual event the Fibro 5 Challenge. Stewards will be placed around the course for the duration of the event with a chair and lots of refreshments to keep them fuelled while the participants take part.

Be a Fibro Welcoming Buddy

Fibro Welcoming buddies are members of the group who are able to meet up with a potential member and get to know them and introduce them to the group, supporting the potential member while they settle in.

Be a committee member

If you are interested in becoming a committee member. You will need to be a pro-active member of the group and have been attending meetings for a minimum of one year. You will have the skills to
help steer the group forward and actively implement plans whether it be fundraising, updating policies or networking. There is also a monthly committee planning meeting to attend.
