Volunteers

Have you been on the Breast Cancer journey? 

Are you interested in helping others move through their experience with Breast Cancer? If so, we'd love to hear from you!

 

Currently, we have a shortage of Volunteer Support Persons to assist us in providing assistance and care for those diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  We have a particular need in the Far North, due to no current representation there. Training is provided. 

 

To be eligible you must:-

  • Have had a breast Cancer diagnosis yourself and be 18 months + post treatment.  Be able to maintain confidentiality and keep an accurate record of your client interactions.  Complete the one day Volunteer Support Person training. 

 

Volunteer Duties

Generally you support one  women a month. The role involves you as a volunteer to be a support and guiding example of how women can cope and manage a breast cancer diagnosis. You will have the ability to relate, understand and have empathy with the fears and feelings that come with a breast cancer diagnosis,  You will be there to help verbally and sometimes in person so they can successfully navigate their journey. You will be offering practical and emotional support, encouragement, information and a shoulder to cry on.

 

However, as a volunteer you do not offer medical or treatment advice, but you can listen and have information on resources available to them.

 

Breast Cancer Support Northland Volunteers tend to phone, video chat, text or email their clients.  Sometimes it is necessary to meet a client in a public place for a coffee or go to an appointment with them. The amount of contact is up to you and your client to decide on what's comfortable for you both. 

 

Our aim is to have Volunteer Support contacts / visitors across the region and of various ages and ethnicities so that we can better match a patient with a supporter. Our next training session will be in early 2022, this will give you the confidence and tools for your new role.  

 

Contact us if you would like to help out in any way.

 

All Volunteers are subject to approval by the Breast Cancer Support Northland Trustees and require police vetting.
