Volunteer with TEDct!

TEDct is run entirely by volunteers, from people whose lives have been affected by TED, to medical professionals. These people are crucial to the success of TEDct, both present and future.

Newsletter Editor needed

Do you have some spare time? Would you like to make a difference? We are currently looking for a volunteer to edit our regular newsletter for our members, most of whom are directly affected by thyroid eye disease. 

We are a UK wide organisation. There is no restriction on where you live – trustees and committee members live as far apart as Cornwall and the West of Scotland. You do not need any knowledge of the condition.

You would need to become a member of the charity and a committee member (not a Trustee). We hold three committee meetings and two Patient Information Meetings a year in different places around Britain. The post of Editor is entirely voluntary but reasonable expenses are paid to enable travel to meetings and any costs associated with production of the newsletter.

If you would like to find out more about the post, please contact us by phone on 07469921782 for an informal discussion.

We're always looking for more Committee members

Important decisions on the way in which TEDct is run are made by its Committee. Some of the Committee’s members are medical practitioners, some former patients.

We’re seeking new members who can commit to a handful of days per year, bring new ideas and a fresh impetus to TEDct to ensure its future.

Work undertaken by the Committee

  • Meeting three or four times a year, with some meetings by telephone conference call.
  • Attending practitioner-led events
  • Organising Patient Information Meetings
  • Manning the helpline
  • Getting information out to patients and medics
  • Administering the membership and updating the website
  • Producing the newsletter and managing TEDct’s email traffic.

What’s in it for you?

In return for your time and efforts, we pay all reasonable expenses incurred on behalf of TEDct and you would have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re not only furthering TEDct’s cause, but also helping all of its members derive the best possible benefit from it.

How to become a volunteer

If you’re a TEDct member and you’d like to contribute, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please send a CV and brief covering email, explaining why and how you think you could help us, to or write to TEDct, PO Box 1928, Bristol, BS37 0AX.
