Volunteer For Us
At PRDA we are thrilled to announce the launch of our volunteer programme.
We are committed to growing our volunteer programme, so do keep an eye on our website for upcoming roles.
If you have a skill that you would like to share with us, an idea for a volunteering opportunity, or an idea that might help us - please let us know.
Patient Advisory Group
The Patient Advisory Group is a panel of volunteers, all of whom are either living with, or are affected by PRD. They are fundamental in helping to shape our support services, feed into our work with health professionals and provide us with the voice of the patient. If you would like to register your interest in joining PAG, please click below.
If you are living with, have symptoms of, or are caring for someone with Pelvic Radiation Disease - and are passionate about raising awareness on the debilitating late effects of PRD - then do get in touch with us. Ideally you are a confident public speaker or are looking to develop your public speaking skills. You will need to be based in the UK and have access to a computer or a laptop for the online delivery of awareness talks. You will receive induction and training for this role.

We're looking for volunteers to help us run more of our online Chat Together groups. This role involves hosting a Chat Together group monthly over Zoom, with a small group of others, in a friendly and supportive environment. To find out more and register your interest, please click below.
We are looking for UK-based volunteers to help us make sure the information that we produce is relevant and useful for our service users.

Rebecca: "Finding PRDA made me feel so relieved. It was similar to when I discovered Maggie's. All of a sudden, you've got a great big hug!
It's not just you, there are other people like you. There's a group of people that know exactly what I'm going through. The PRDA want to help others; they want to educate health professionals..."

Dafydd: I have experience and knowledge of Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD) and feel that I can help fellow patients to feel less anxious about what they are going through. If there is anything that I can do to help other people, then I would like to do it. I know that as a PRDA Volunteer I can help people in so many different ways; doing so also aids my own mental recovery..."
