UN Volunteer Day – join our web team?

Today is the United Nations International Volunteer Day

It has the theme “Volunteer for an inclusive future”, highlighting the pursuit of equality and inclusion through volunteerism.

Volunteering provides opportunities for those often excluded, to impact their own lives and play a constructive role in their communities by volunteering their time and skills.

Could you spare a few hours a week?
We are looking for volunteers to join our web team!

We are using today’s #IVD2019 to promote this volunteering opportunity for you to join our web team and support the GSD community.

Effective communication is central to everything we do at AGSD-UK. We have appointed a volunteer to lead on the management of our website. We are now looking for a small team of volunteers to assist.

You just need a willingness to get involved. However, some knowledge of GSDs would be helpful, and some experience with a web content management system would be an advantage. (We use a top industry package, and a full briefing will be given.)

Have you got skills or aptitude in any of these areas?

We are particularly looking for volunteers who can assist in the following areas:

News – Liaising with AGSD-UK staff and GSD coordinators, gathering stories and writing up articles that effectively communicate the message to readers.

Personal stories – Following leads provided to you, interviewing patients and writing up their stories.

Content editing – Ideally someone with aptitude for web content management to help maintain the website as it develops. Confidence with handling text, images and layout will be a great advantage.

Fact checking / proof reading – Do you have an eye for detail and a feel for how articles and pages read? We need someone to check new content and give constructive feedback.

Please contact us to discuss this opportunity

If you would like to have a conversation about joining the team, please contact Andrew Wakelin, acting webmaster. Email Andrew at or phone him on 01597 860686.
