As we go into our 20th year working to end the suffering caused by ME, we want to fund more biomedical research than ever before. We also want to raise awareness of ME and our work to a wider audience.

We need your help to do this. We are looking for more volunteers who can help us with awareness-raising activities, and help others to raise funds for our cause.

In particular, at this stage we are looking to recruit two specific types of volunteer:

1. Ambassadors

The main aim of our new ambassador programme is to raise awareness of ME and our organisation. Doing this will help to raise vital funds to support our ongoing work.

Ambassadors raise awareness in many ways, such as attending events to talk about our work, and encouraging others to raise funds. This is a really important role as it helps us to reach new people, to inspire fundraising activity, and to also thank our supporters for the work they are doing.

2. Community Fundraising Champions

The main aim of a community fundraising champion is to develop and support the aims of the charity by raising vital funds to support our ongoing work.

Community fundraising champions can do this in many ways, such as running their own events to raise awareness and funds within their local communities. Alternatively, they can provide advice and support to others who would like to raise funds for us. This vital role helps us to raise funds, to reach new people, and to make sure fundraising income is maximised.

Our initial aim is to create a network of Ambassadors and Community Fundraising Champions throughout the UK. If you think this is something you would like to be involved in, please get in touch with us to find out more or simply fill in the application form below. Once we have reviewed the applications we receive, we will get in touch with you to discuss things in more detail.

Of course, if you know someone who you think would be great for either role, please feel free to pass this information along to them!
