Offering Your Skills

Can you help us build on the information we currently provide?

We are looking for help in the following areas of the website:

  1. Local Area Support - this section will list support services available to people affected by any grade of Brain Tumour, but with services for those with high-grade brain tumours highlighted. We aim to cover all the cities in the UK so, as you can imagine, it's a huge task, and we need your help in searching the internet, and then making phone calls to local support centres to find out if there are other organisations which have been missed from online searches. Of course your own knowledge of your local area will be invaluable, so please don't feel that you have to do more than one area unless you want to! Even if you just let us know about one organisation who has helped you, that would be wonderful.

  2. Research Papers - do you regularly search engines such as PubMed for the latest research related to low-grade brain tumours? Would you like to help us compile that research for this website?

  3. Regular Link Checks - could you help to make sure that all the links on BT Buddies are working correctly? If you find any broken links, please let us know so that we can get them fixed as soon as possible.

  4. Support Groups - we need to check that the contact details for each group are kept up to date, and that new groups are added as they begin. If you could help by searching support directories and checking these links every 6 months, we would welcome your help.

  5. Stories of Hope - we always welcome new stories for this area of the website and hope that you will consider sharing your own.

  6. Spiritual Support - we would like to list organisations of all denominations that offer support to anyone affected by Cancer and would welcome any suggestions and personal stories that you may have.

Or, do you have specific skills you think may be useful?

  1. Marketing, PR and Advertising - we would like to produce a leaflet to advertise the BT Buddies and Astro Fund website, and some business cards to help with our networking. Could you help us with design, layout and text? Could you help with other aspects of publicising our work?

  2. Printing - we will need to get our leaflets and business cards printed, do you know anyone who could donate time, skills or money to help us?
