Volunteer as an education advocate

Education Advocate training

Date: Saturday 15 January 2022
Location: Zoom (online)
Application deadline: 23 December 2021

If you have a spinal cord injury and want to support children and young people to be fully included in their education, you should volunteer as an education advocate.

Our passionate team ensure every young person can thrive during their education, socialise with their friends, and fulfil their true potential.

Being an education advocate involves:

  • Visiting children and young people at hospital, school or university
  • Delivering presentations and workshops to students and staff to raise awareness and understanding of spinal cord injury
  • Promoting the voice of the child or young person
  • Working as a collective team with other professionals and organisations, supporting the child/young person’s individual needs

Please note that at the moment most of the support is being provided through virtual platforms so there is no need to travel or attend any visits in person.
