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.

The two-year Young Ambassador programme is for young adults aged 18-25. We currently have 20 Young Ambassadors along with a team of Young Ambassador Mentors.

Our Young Ambassadors support The Charity in many ways, including:

  • Attending information days and launches of our latest reports
  • Volunteering at events
  • Helping raise awareness of brain tumours, to ultimately defeat them

They have also been involved in developing our new Young Adult Service and offer support to other teenagers and young adults affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.

We are now looking for our next group of Young Ambassadors. Find out more.

"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."
