Become a Web Chat Volunteer

The new Endometriosis UK Web chat service is a vital part of our Support Network services. 

The web chat service offers those with endometriosis a chance to share their feelings and experience to someone who knows exactly what they are going through. You will be providing emotional support and signposting to further information, all through our web chat system. The rewards of being a web chat volunteer are very special - knowing that you have helped someone can be immensely satisfying.

We are looking for self-motivated and compassionate individuals to help deliver our brand new web chat service.
