We know that meeting others with alopecia can play a huge part in a child's alopecia journey. Not only can it provide a wealth of peer support and advice, help children feel less alone and understand their feelings are perfectly normal, it also helps reduce anxiety and build confidence.

In order for us to support children across the UK, we need 1-2 Kids' Online Meeting Group Leaders to facilitate the groups, bringing their enthusiasm and ideas into the meetings to keep the meetings fresh for the children attending.

About the role

In a nutshell, our Kids' Online Meeting Group Leaders do 3 things:

  • Plan 1 interactive and fun virtual meeting for children aged 7-12 per month. Meetings are 1 hour and take place on a weekday evening. Whilst we hope to keep the meetings fresh and relevant, we also don’t expect completely different agendas each time. We have some old favourites that come up time and time again like a good virtual scavenger hunt!
  • Host and lead the meeting with an AUK staff member or volunteer joining you on the meeting for the technical & admin side of the meeting (of course joining in with the games and being another role model too!) As the group lead, these are your meetings, we're just there to support you.
  • Our Leads are upbeat, energetic and reliable, being a positive role model to the children attending.

Location: Remote, Online

Estimated hours: 2-3 hours per month, 1.5 hours hosting the meeting and 1-1.5 hours preparing the agenda for your session.
