I am happy to share that our Usher Kids UK 2024 summer camp will take place again in the Lake District this year, running from 4th - 10th August 2024, and we have recently opened up registration for volunteers. This is a unique opportunity for post-grad students and professionals working in a related field (e.g. sensory support - HI / VI / MSI, social work, youth work, genetics, audiology, optometry/ophthalmology, OT/PT etc.) especially those early in their careers, to gain insight into the daily experiences of young people living with Usher syndrome. Previous volunteers have reported how valuable, rewarding and unforgettable the USHthis camp experience has been!

I would be grateful if you could share the details (below) with relevant colleagues, students and professionals, either via the Heads of Service group and/or any other networks you are part of - your help is much appreciated. 

The details are below.  You could also share our social media post if easier: https://www.instagram.com/p/C1reI8VOM9k/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

What will I do? Our USHthis volunteer team brings together professionals from different backgrounds with different levels of experience, providing them with training so that they can offer support and guidance to help our USHyouth get the most of the camp experience.
