Volunteer Chelsea

Volunteering at a support group

It was a very warm and welcoming setting where people were free to talk about whatever they wished, not just their problems in life. This to me was extremely insightful as it showed how different people and their families can be affected by brain tumours differently.

I am a psychology student and I regularly help out the Stoke-on-Trent Support Group making refreshments, welcoming newcomers and joining in with discussions.

Before I attended my first support group I expected the session to be a little upsetting with perhaps a slight negative atmosphere; however this was not the case at all!


Everyone was so positive and in good spirits which was so empowering to see. I feel that this was encouraged by the set-up of the session - I expected a meeting in the style of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, but it was so different to that.

Christine Bettson, former Brain Tumour Support Worker for Staffordshire, was always grateful for Chelsea's input and said:
"Chelsea is absolutely lovely – she is very helpful at support groups and engages so well with those who attend."
