Use Your Voice

UK-Med / Use Your Voice

Community speakers

Are you passionate about UK-Med and want to help spread the word?  

We are recruiting speakers to help us raise awareness of our work. Talks could be given at schools, workplaces, community groups, hospitals or anywhere people would be interested in hearing about our work. We’ll provide you with training session including public speaking tips, as well as a template presentation. Register your interest in the next Community Speaker Training here.  

Would you like a UK-Med speaker at your event?  

We have a network of volunteers across the UK who are passionate about our work and would be delighted to come and speak to your workplace, club or school about UK-Med’s lifesaving work. Many of our speakers have responded to emergencies with us and have experienced first-hand how important our mission is. Please get in touch with Ellie at ellie.kinney@uk-med.org to book a Community Speaker.  

Volunteering

We’re a small but mighty team, and we appreciate a helping hand!

Our HQ is based in the University of Manchester but many of our staff work remotely, so we welcome volunteers from across the world. Volunteers ideally need to be available within regular office hours and we can’t always guarantee that we’ll have a role that’s the right fit for you, but here’s a selection of some of the volunteering opportunities we might be able to offer:  

  • Volunteering at an event 
  • Fundraising 
  • PR and Communications 
  • Admin 

If you have some spare time to offer, please get in touch with Ellie at ellie.kinney@uk-med.org. 

Student groups

Are you a student looking to get involved with UK-Med? You could set up a UK-Med student group at your university like students at The University of Manchester did. The group has been involved in planning informative panel discussions as well as hosting social fundraising events, all to raise awareness of UK-Med’s lifesaving work across the world.   

Setting up a student group gives you valuable organizational experience for your future, and UK-Med will provide you with an insight into a frontline medical aid NGO.
