All of our people are unpaid volunteers. We have no paid staff. Our volunteers make a real difference to others, learn a lot, make new friends and have fun. Find out more about volunteering...
As our charity grows and our work increases, there are many opportunities to volunteer:

Support: Use your experience of aortic dissection to support other patients and relatives.
Storytelling: Share your lived experience of aortic dissection as a patient or relative story in writing, on a podcast or video, or as a speaker at an event.
Events: Help us plan our awareness events and attend medical conferences.
Digital: Join the team that maintains this website and our social media presence.
