On this page we will share current opportunities (paid or voluntary) to work with us at the Summer Foundation. Your lived experience can inform our work and by sharing your story you can enable others to feel more supported, empowered and connected.
There are many ways to contribute your lived experience, whether you’re a person with disability, a carer, or a close other – we’d love to support you to do this. It may be through a case study for a resource, having your say in a submission or participating in a workshop to mention a few.
Check in regularly to see new opportunities as they come up.
