Julia Bishop

I started volunteering for ERIC in May 2012. I work two days a week with Jackie, the Learning & Development Manager, helping to organise training seminars - booking venues, accommodation and travel, preparing delegate packs and certificates and assessing course feedback afterwards. 

The contribution I'm most proud of is helping towards the success of the 2014 and 2016 conferences. We're now hard at work to make the 2018 conference even better.

ERIC is a really friendly place to volunteer and what I do is always appreciated. I love hearing about the children and families who we help. I've also learned a lot about wee and poo since working here!

Jackie says: "Julia is an incredibly valued member of the ERIC team. She's always reliable, flexible and happy to help with anything she can. She gives so much of her time, not only to ERIC but also to other great causes like St Peters Hospice and the Girl Guides. We are incredibly lucky to have her on board."
