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

Volunteer Counsellor (Qualified) –

As a Volunteer Counsellor for this service you would work with a wide range of clients who either have a brain tumour diagnosis themselves or have a loved one who has been diagnosed. This includes patients/carers who have been newly diagnosed, to those in/post treatment, to people at end of life, or bereaved. This is a remote service, where we offer up to 8 free sessions to clients, delivered by either telephone or webcam.

Student Counsellor – Recruitment is currently paused. –

We are in a position to offer a number of unpaid student placements, to those training to be integrative or person centred counsellors, which will see you work via telephone/webcam only, with a wide range of clients; from those newly diagnosed, to those at end of life, carers and bereaved loved ones. This is a home-based role, and you can help by volunteering your time to see a minimum of 3 clients per week, between the hours of 9am—5.30pm, Monday—Friday.

Challenge Events Motivation Caller – Recruitment is paused until our Autumn events. –

To ensure our fundraisers receive the best possible support, we like to give each of them a call before their challenge event to wish them good luck. But with hundreds of fundraisers, we need your help! If you sign up to help, you’ll be allocated a number of fundraisers to contact at a time that suits you during the week or two prior to each challenge event. We will provide you with all the information you need including a script to follow and frequently asked questions so that you feel confident to make calls to our fundraisers.


If you’d like to apply for either of the roles above, please complete the relevant application form.

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.
