A word before I go
EPC is very proud of its award-winning biography program.
Our biography volunteers work one on one with our clients allowing them to tell their story. The process of storytelling enables messages, philosophies, beliefs, memories and culture to pass from one person to the next. Many clients also report a reduction in anxiety, depression, pain and breathlessness and an increase in self esteem as a result of undertaking this. Biography recording takes place over 6 – 10 visits of one hour in duration.
We also work with parents who are dying and assist them in creating age appropriate versions of their story for their young children – Children’s Picture Book Biography.
If you enjoy listening and typing, have access to a computer and the internet, have medium level word processing skills and are passionate about assisting someone have that ‘word before I go’ experience then this could be the role for you.Sign up to Become a Volunteer with EPC
