yap final

Join the YAP 2018/19!

Exciting opportunity to join our next Youth Advisory Panel (YAP)!

It’s that time of year again when we scour the country for a group of enthusiastic young people to join our YAP team and help change the lives of other young people affected by OCD!

What is the YAP?

The Youth Advisory Panel is a group of young volunteers at the heart of OCD Youth (an OCD Action service run by young people with OCD for other young people with OCD). The YAP work together with the Youth Service Manager to deliver services for young people affected by OCD, including our e-Helpline, face-to-face meet ups, online Forums and much more!

If you are passionate about reducing stigma and misinformation around OCD, and increasing access to support and treatment for young people who need it, we want to hear from you!

How can I apply?

Be a YAP Volunteer!

If you are a young person (aged 13-25) who is affected by OCD or a related disorder and you are interested in applying to be on our panel the first step is to have a look at the recruitment pack above. There you’ll find a list of all the roles on the YAP and a bit more information about what’s involved as a volunteer. The pack also includes an application form, so if you think YAP volunteering sounds like your cup of tea, just fill out the form and send it back to Olivia (olivia@ocdaction.org.uk) by 5pm on Monday 24th September 2018!.
