Improving Brain Tumour Care surveys share your experiences and help create change

Volunteer from home

It’s important to us that volunteers are able to support The Charity in a way that is flexible and suits the amount of time they are able to give, while helping us to move closer to our goal of defeating brain tumours.

Our digital volunteer opportunities can be done from home, in your own time. Find out more about all of our current opportunities below. 
We particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups across all protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, sexual orientation, sex, and religion or belief.

Current roles

Counselling Assessment Volunteer – PDF

Following the delivery of a successful pilot service, we know the difference that talking therapy can make and our goal is to reach more people, ensuring everyone that wants it, gets the support that they need. As a Counselling Assessment Volunteer for this service, you will be the first point of call for new clients entering in to the service. This role will require you to talk to a wide range of people – from those newly diagnosed, to others at end of life and also bereaved.

Support Line Volunteer (Triage) – PDF

We are looking for volunteers to help us to run the Support Line more efficiently, by answering calls and asking some key questions to ensure the caller is transferred/triaged to the most appropriate support for them. This is an opportunity to be on the frontline of our support services and to play a vital role, in ensuring those that we support get the best service possible.

Trust Fundraising Support Volunteer – PDF

We are looking for a volunteer with knowledge and understanding of fundraising to support us with researching trusts who we could submit applications to and helping to write and send applications to trusts. Trust fundraising is a key income stream for The Charity, so you will be playing a key role in a team that is directly contributing to improving the lives of people who are affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.

Supporting The Charity gives me immense satisfaction, and is a huge source of pride. Now the priority of working and raising my family is less intense I have something else to give me a real purpose.
