Volunteer with Steps

Become a Steps volunteer

Now more than ever we need your help to support our community. We are experiencing a high number of requests of support. If you can, please consider volunteering for Steps. We need help with the following:

  • Family and Peer-to Peer Service; our Family and Peer to Peer service is an informal support program which, depending on the condition, puts families and individuals in touch with others who have shared a similar experience. Please note that due to the current situation with COVID-19 support will be provided primarily via phone or emails.
  • Online community Service: our online community service supports our service users by engaging with them via Steps’ online services such as Forum (to be launched soon!) and closed groups. This might include sharing stories online, writing blogs, posting new information or supporting the community online.
  • Patient Involvement Group; our Patient Involvement Group supports the Helpline and Research team by providing feedback on relevant research and publications related to a particular condition. Volunteers are asked to work in groups to review and provide relevant feedback based on their condition, experience and professional judgment. Skype or Zoom meetings will be created to ensure the wellbeing and safety of the volunteers.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please send us a message via our contact form and we’ll get back to you.
