Our Young Ambassadors

Our Young Ambassadors are an integral part of The Brain Tumour Charity. They help us to raise awareness of brain tumours and are passionate about changing the future for those affected.

"Being a Young Ambassador means that I can turn an isolating and negative experience in to a fulfilling one. Brain tumours are underfunded, under researched and under acknowledged, I seek to change this through sharing my story, raising awareness and encouraging people to help fund further research." - April, one of our Young Ambassadors.

Getting involved

Our Young Ambassadors get involved in a number of things we do as a charity. They attend information days, launches of our latest reports, and volunteer at events. All the while, raising awareness of brain tumours, to ultimately defeat them.

We are looking to recruit new Young Ambassadors, to play a vital role in representing The Charity. If you are aged between 18-25, have had personal experience of being affected by a brain tumour and are passionate about improving outcomes for people affected by brain tumours, we would love to hear from you!

Young Ambassadors travel to Europe

Having all been affected by the diagnosis of a brain tumour, our Young Ambassadors bare helping to spread the word and make an impact for other young people nationwide. A number of them travelled to Brussels to press for more effective regulation to incentivise the development of paediatric cancer drugs and for better support services for those living with a brain tumour.

Our Young Ambassadors met Emma McClarkin, Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for the East Midlands to discuss their experiences and visited the office of the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC).

Emma pledged to facilitate the translation of HeadSmart cards to be distributed throughout Europe. This is great news for the HeadSmart campaign, as it means our message could be spread further and young lives could be saved throughout Europe.
