Current Volunteering Opportunities

We have lots of exciting ways to support the Forum and our projects, from oral history projects to climate action.

Please note, unless otherwise stated, all volunteers with the Forum must identify as Disabled.

To apply to any of these roles please email Emma at cca.bristoldef@gmail.com

Befrienders

The pandemic has isolated many Disabled people, and made accessing the internet an essential skill. For some this has damaged their confidence around leaving their house. Befrienders are needed to offer support over the phone, visit people in their homes, help them access the internet and carry out support plans tailored to the individual.

Disabled Climate Champions

To help guide the Community Climate Action project’s work with Disabled people we are forming a steering group of Bristol residents who identify as Disabled. This group will meet once a month for at least a year to guide the development of the project. Membership is being selected to ensure a diversity of Disabled perspectives and experiences. Read more about the project.

Forging Our Future

Forging Our Future is an exciting project to tell the story of the Disabled People’s movement in Bristol from the 1980s- 2010.  A group of Disabled young people have carried out a series of interviews with some of the activists who made this movement happen.  We now want to find ways to make these stories accessible to wide-ranging audiences including schools and will be working with exhibition and learning resource designers to make this happen.   Do you want to be part of this process?  We are looking for Disabled young people aged 16 – 25 to join us in bringing these stories out into the open.

Bookkeeper

General help is needed with the charity’s accounts, including: sending out invoices and managing the accounts receivable ledger, handling the accounts payable ledger, keeping an eye on cash flow and preparing the books for the accountant.

Marketing

We need a marketer to work with our communications staff to work on strategies to help promote the Forum’s exciting projects. Previous experience essential.

Fundraising

The charity needs fundraisers to develop and carry out a fundraising strategy to develop our charitable donations income stream.

Data Entry

We are rebuilding our database and need a volunteer to help carry over from the old database and send out forms to ensure our information is up to date.

Leafleting

We need people to deliver our leaflets to people’s doors once a month. Non-Disabled people welcome.
