Volunteering

 

 

The Parkinson’s UK Volunteering team

The Volunteering team are a small team based in London and include a Head of Volunteering, a Volunteer Programme Manager, two Volunteer Programme Coordinators and a Learning and Development Manager. They are the central point of contact for all internal and external queries relating to volunteers such as volunteer recruitment and learning and development. The team doesn’t directly support Parkinson’s UK’s 3000 volunteers but ensures we have the right volunteering processes, policies and guidance in place to work towards our goal of bringing forward the day when no one fears Parkinson’s.
