Contact Person Network

The Fellowship has a small network of volunteer Contact Persons. Their  role is to assist us to provide information, advice & support to people with Albinism more locally.

What do Contact Persons do?

The kinds of activities that a Contact Person might undertake locally for us include:

  • Provide information, advice and support to people affected by Albinism in their local area.
  • Organise local get togethers with support from our Trustees
  • Promote the Fellowship’s services to local families
  • Organise and encourage others to get involved in fundraising events.
  • Develop and maintain knowledge of information for members.
  • Occasionally represent us with the media.

Our  Contact Persons are all undertaking a voluntary role and are very much there to guide and support you based on their and our experiences as opposed to being an ‘expert’ on albinism.

How do I access Contact Person support now?

To get in touch with a Contact Person, contact the fellowship as usual via telephone or email.

We will take initial details of your enquiry and if we have a Contact Person in your area that can help we will forward details of your enquiry to them and they will get back to you. Also please do tell us if you want to volunteer to help support a Contact Person with local activities including fundraising.

Details of information and fundraising events being organised by our Contact Persons and awareness raising events/exhibitions they attend will be placed on this site.

If you have any questions about our Contact Person role or would like to volunteer as a contact person for your area please contact us.
