Join the BRCA army

Do you have a genetic mutation such as BRCA1/2 or Lynch syndrome? Have you been affected by a loved one’s experience of genetic testing? We need YOU for our BRCArmy.

How can you help?

We are looking for keen volunteers - men and women alike - to join our BRCArmy, to help spread awareness of BRCA gene mutations.

Whether you can spare an hour as a one off, or can commit to volunteering more regularly, we want you to help us take action. Help us change the status quo in the following ways:

Raise awareness of BRCA

  • Sharing your story on our website
  • Writing a blog post about your genetic testing experience
  • Talking to your local media about your story
  • Distributing our materials in your area

Represent Ovarian Cancer Action

  • Manning a stall at an event in your area to talk to visitors about BRCA
  • Giving awareness talks in your local area to raise awareness of BRCA in the general public

Join a movement

  • Get together with other members of the BRCArmy, both virtually through our Facebook group, and in person, to share ideas and energy.
  • Organise your own fundraising and awareness events.

Help us grow

  • Be our eyes and ears in your local area, and feedback to help us shape our campaigns and policies
  • Evaluate our website and materials – have your voice heard

What do you get in return?

  • A dedicated Facebook group
  • A contact to come to with any worries/concerns
  • Full training for awareness talks
  • Regular e-newsletter to keep you up to date with our events, research, fundraising and volunteering opportunities.
