Make a real difference in your spare time
Our volunteers are the heart of MDS UK Patient Support Group. Without them, we would not be able to continue to provide information and support to MDS Patients and their families.
Our volunteers have a range of experiences: some have MDS and are patients themselves, some have supported a friend or family member, others have professional or personal skills that can support our activities. Many of our volunteer roles can be undertaken in your own home.
As a volunteer you could be involved in any of these activities or others:
- Moderating our online forum
- Fundraising or helping others to raise money
- Helping organising the meetings of our Local Support Groups
The top two reasons for volunteering are that volunteers 'find it rewarding to know they are helping others', and 'they enjoy volunteering as they themselves benefited from our services and so they enjoy giving something back'.
