Join Us

Become a Thrombosis UK volunteer and join our campaign to:

  • Save lives
  • Increase understanding
  • Support recovery and
  • Prevent avoidable blood clots

Whether it's a few hours or a few days, contact us about becoming a Thrombosis UK volunteer and help in our work to make a difference.

As a Thrombosis UK volunteer, you play a vital role in the raising of awareness and understanding about venous thromboembolism - blood clots - also known as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and PE (pulmonary embolism).

Whether you are able to volunteer on a regular basis or for a one-off event, you will be helping to make a difference.

Ways you can volunteer

Would love to help but are unable to offer on a regular basis ?

Sharing your story

You will be helping to raise awareness and letting others know they are not alone in their recovery journey.

Media & press

Each year Thrombosis UK hold awareness campaigns. Press and media coverage is critical to increasing awareness to many 1000s of people.

To be included on a bank of volunteers we could call upon if approached, you would need to first share your thrombosis story with the Thrombosis UK team.

Speak Out

Annually Thrombosis UK hosts and supports conferences, often for healthcare professionals. If you are passionate about raising awareness of blood clots, a confident communicator and comfortable presenting to an audience. We are seeking volunteers who would be happy to present and share their experience of thrombosis.

Employee volunteer days

Does your employer offer an annual volunteer day? We would welcome liaising with you on how your time could help Thrombosis UK.

Do you have a few hours to offer each month or an occasional day ?

Enjoy reading ?

We are seeking reviewers who are confident in proof-reading, reviewing and providing feedback on existing and in-development resources.

Whether it's a few hours or a few days, contact us about becoming a Thrombosis UK volunteer and join in helping to make a difference.

Passionate to raise awareness ?

Volunteer to man a Thrombosis UK awareness stand.

Sharing patient information is a vital part of our work to raise awareness of the risks, signs and symptoms of blood clots. If you enjoy talking to the general public, can offer a half day or full day, one to three times per year and are able to travel (usually within 20 miles of your location), please contact us by clicking the button below:

A few hours per week ?

Come to Bristol ?

If you are based in the Bristol / South Bristol area, we are seeking admin volunteers to help source and record donated stock for the on-line Thrombosis UK shop.

To apply please complete the application form below.

Act of kindness

Could you help support a new patient resource page on the Thrombosis UK website, ‘a letter to you’ ?

We would like to post letters from blood-clot survivors to others. It’s ok for your letter to be anonymous.

A few suggestions on topics that might be helpful to include:

  • Your age at the time
  • How it affected you
  • Those early days in recovery
  • Coping with changes, perhaps in friends, family, work and activity
  • Tips that helped you

Pass on a Thrombosis UK postcard

Whether to neighbours, for your pharmacy or GP wall or at work, why not share an information card to help make others aware of blood clots?

Already have a challenge planned?

Why not do your
challenge for Thrombosis UK?

By raising awareness and funds you will be helping many, many others at risk of affected by thrombosis.
