There’s no such thing as an ordinary life, just lives that have not been celebrated yet.
MND Victoria Life Story Volunteers work with people living with MND to tell the stories of their life so they can be recorded, passed on and celebrated in the way they want.
Our Life Story Volunteers work with a person living with MND for a period of time to record their stories, to transcribe the recorded stories and to prepare those stories for printing. Once complete Life Stories are presented to clients and their families.
Life Story Volunteers are people who are interested in learning about people and are comfortable in working with people to share their stories, sometimes encouraging them to tell more.
Working to record stories, transcribe them and then to form them ready for printing means this role is well suited to people who are comfortable in a listening role and with using computer technology.
Training to prepare volunteers for this role is provided along with ongoing support through staff and experienced Life Story Volunteers.
The rewards of this role are many for volunteers, clients, and their families.
We are currently seeking to build our team of Life Story volunteers across the state.
