Do you live in Milton Keynes? Would you like to volunteer at the Different Strokes Office?
Thanks to the support of the Milton Keynes Community Foundation, we are currently looking for stroke survivor volunteers to join our small, friendly team at the Different Strokes office in Milton Keynes. This is an opportunity to build skills and confidence whilst using your personal experience of stroke.
Duties include general administration and providing a listening ear to other stroke survivors via the StrokeLine. Training will be provided and we will pay your expenses.
Stroke in Childhood Film Workshop
As part of the Child Stroke Project, the Stroke Association and Different Strokes are planning a Film Workshop. This is an opportunity for young people affected by stroke in childhood to come together and plan a short film to raise awareness about issues that matter to them. Participants need to have had a stroke before the age of 16, and be no older than 22.
