This is the A-Team

This is the A-Team

If you have a problem, if no one else can help… Then you can get support from Hope. Hope, in turn, gets a lot of support from its Advisory Team – the A-Team.

A group of volunteers, aged 16 to 25, spread around the UK, who work to promote the voices and share the experiences of young people with a loved one who is seriously ill.

Not everything is black and white

From consulting and supporting the activities of Hope, to public engagement and lobbying, we work to ensure that the experiences of young people with a seriously-ill loved one are reflected at all levels of society, from the local to national (and even international!) levels, and in different areas, from public organizations to private enterprise.

No two members of the Advisory Team have the same story, no two members of the Advisory Team have dealt with things in the same way but every member of the Advisory team has experienced what it’s like to be inside a family health crisis and is committed to opening up society so it better understands and reflects those experiences.

We’re not recruiting… today

The A-Team is frequently on the look out for new volunteers who can support our work to engage the public and promote the voices of young people who’ve been through serious family-health crises.

At the moment we don’t have any vacancies, but if you’re interested, why not sign up for the newsletter and be sure to check the box for volunteer opportunities. That way you’ll be the first to know when new slots open.
