Launching our new peer support scheme "Check In and Chat"

Mon 05 July

"Check In and Chat" is YBTC's new peer support scheme, which matches people in need of support with a volunteer who has gone through a similar experience.
YBTC is constantly working to find different ways of offering support and we know we have a wealth of knowledge and kindness within our charity community. We also know how important it is to speak to someone who really understands what you're going through.

Check In and Chat is our new peer support scheme, which "buddies up" people in need of support with a trained volunteer who has been through a similar experience and can lend a listening ear. This might be a patient, family member, carer, or somebody who has sadly lost a loved one to a brain tumour.

The "buddies" can chat in any way that works for them, whether that's over the phone, by text or in person.

We are looking for volunteers who would like to be a "chat buddy", volunteering their time to support someone who has had their life turned upside down by a brain tumour.

The role involves a one-to-one conversation with somebody who is in need of support. The role is flexible to work around your busy schedule, and we can help you to set a time commitment that works for you. We offer full training, guidance and ongoing supervision to all our volunteers to help you fulfil this rewarding role and ensure everything goes smoothly.
