From it’s very beginnings on a Deana Kenward's dining room table in 1984, the Addison’s Disease Self-Help Group has brought volunteers together to support anyone affected by Addison’s Disease. Volunteers continue to be vital to our work.

These are our core values for volunteering with ADSHG - our volunteering charter.

Volunteering should be fun.

If not, we’re doing something wrong. 😉

Volunteering should be rewarding & satisfying.

Meet new people, make new friends, change the world. 

Volunteering is unpaid.

But we will reimburse out-of-pocket expenses*.

Volunteers are fully supported.

We will help you share existing skills – and develop new skills, too.

Every volunteer with ADSHG has a simple volunteer role description, which sets out what's involved, how we will support the volunteer and what we expect of each other. We regularly advertise volunteering opportunities to our members via email and also on

Join us – and change the world!
