Young People with Eczema (8-18 years old)
When We Need You
From 03/12/2012 onwards
This is a rare chance to contribute to a unique project and use your promotion and people skills! We need help from enthusiastic people from across Scotland to act as the local ambassadors of Eczema Outreach by promoting our services in their area and encouraging families to join us and get support. We have a range of materials and ideas to help you spread the word near you. The range of activities are buddying/scrapbooking about your feelings or giving tips about how you deal with eczema daily/raising awareness by holding a stall at a local surgery or at your school or college/entering information onto our closed FB page/attending our social events around Scotland and assisting our younger members/handing out posters to your local youth group or to your clinic or school/college. Please get in touch for me to tell you more about our opportunities. If you feel up for the challenge and want to make a real difference to children suffering with eczema and their families, please contact us.
We have recently been rewarded with the Volunteer Friendly Award.
