The IED is run by a small team of permanent staff, but the majority of our activities are carried out by volunteers. Active members give their time to help with a range of activities, including: assessment of applications, accreditation of courses, compiling the content of the journal and guiding the development and future role of the Institution.

We are currently looking for enthusiastic members of all ages and levels of experience who are able to contribute some time (possibly only a couple of hours a month) to support the IED by joining a committee, working group, panel or Council.

Volunteering is great for your personal and professional development, counts towards CPD and gives you a fuzzy feeling inside! You get to work with your fellow members and staff, share your expertise, make new friends and add to your skills set. All travel expenses are covered and you decide how much time you can give.

If you are interested in finding out more, we would love to hear from you – email us at or use the contact form on the right and we’ll get in touch for a chat.
