Volunteering with the North Durham Group

Do you want to make a difference to those affected by MS - If so this is for you

Volunteers are the key to our success both nationally and locally. We're a UK-wide community of volunteers, fundraisers, researchers and campaigners working together to stop MS.


So our volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. The North Durham group covers Durham, Chester Le Street, Derwentside and surrounding areas and is led by a team of volunteers.


We currently have exciting team volunteering opportunities for a number of new volunteers to make a difference to the local MS Community.  You will become team members within an existing team whose role is to promote the presence of the North Durham group, to raise funds for the group in order that we can provide help and support to the local community and coordinating the activities of the local group to meet the needs of people with MS.  These are all hands on roles which include not only organising but taking an active part in the work of the whole team and the group.
