Spread the word about brainstrust’s work and mission
Digital Engagement Volunteers: Creators
More and more people are looking for help online following a brain tumour diagnosis. We have a growing team of digital volunteers who are furthering brainstrust’s mission in the virtual world.
We currently need volunteer content creators and conversation starters to work with our incredible online community of people with a brain tumour and their caregivers.
Volunteer Social Ambassadors
These amazing people use their reach, experience and time online for good. They spread the word about brainstrust and our mission to provide incredible, impactful brain tumour support across social media, using their own established platforms.
Sharing your own story, or reaching out to others with information about brainstrust’s support services, you’ll be helping more people access life-changing brain tumour support.
Since the beginning of time, stories have engaged, enthused, inspired and informed people. Stories are a vital part of helping the people we are here for to feel less alone and more informed about their brain tumour journey.
We know that everybody sees experiences through a different lens, so we are always looking for gifted writers, bloggers, diarists, speakers and storytellers to use the power of narrative to inspire and engage people to seek support or get behind our vital mission.
Volunteer Peer Supporter
Help people with a brain tumour go from being lonely to being listened to and supported. Our Peer Support Volunteers play an incredible role in helping people feel better supported and less alone.
At brainstrust we don’t underestimate the value of talking to someone who has had a similar experience. Our community overwhelmingly reports that a brain tumour diagnosis is frightening, isolating and bewildering. Talking to someone who has already been through the same experience can help to reduce the isolation, make sense of what is happening, and reduce the fear of the unknown.
This service, which is only possible because of our amazing volunteers, directly connects people with a Peer Supporter in order to help them feel better understood and supported. Peer supporters are trained volunteers who have been through a similar experience to you – whether you are the patient or caregiver.
