Then you are who we need as a volunteer in Social Health Fredericia!

Vulnerable people have a significantly higher incidence of a number of diseases than the general population. Studies show that socially vulnerable citizens live on average 22 years shorter than the general Danish population. In addition, vulnerable people have a marked increase in consumption of emergency healthcare compared with the general Danish population. Unfortunately, their meeting with the healthcare system can be characterized with distrust caused by past bad experiences

As a volunteer in Social Health, you will help build bridges between socially vulnerable people and the healthcare system. You will help accompany and support vulnerable citizens in their contact with the health service. By doing this you will gain insight into social inequality and practical experience of making relationships and communicating with vulnerable and vulnerable citizens that you can use in your future work.

What do we expect of you?

  • That you have a health background or you are a health student
  • That you have the courage of new challenges, while at the same time becoming smarter and proficient in your subject
  • That you have dedication and empathy for socially vulnerable and vulnerable people
  • That you have the time and desire to engage you voluntarily in reducing social inequalities in health.
  • That you can spend at least one day a month, where you are available to vulnerable and vulnerable people who need your help.

On the other hand, we can offer you:

  • A strong social network in a nationwide society
  • Experience working with socially vulnerable and vulnerable people
  • Influence on the start of Social Health Fredericia
  • A voluntary certificate and an opinion on at least 6 months of volunteer work, which you can attach to your resume, which may contribute to your dream job
