Your Voice

The Your Voice Lung Health Advocacy Program is Australia’s only consumer led, nationally coordinated political advocacy program. Members of our Your Voice advocacy program receive ongoing training and support to engage in targeted campaign activities across our portfolio of activities in lung cancer and lung disease.

We have two streams to the Lung Foundation Your Voice program:

  • Lung Cancer Advocates: individuals affected by lung cancer (either as a patient, direct carer, family or friend of an individual with lung cancer and lung cancer health professionals). Your Voice Lung Cancer Advocates  – focused on improving outcomes for lung cancer patients and their families – engage with a range of stakeholders to achieve the objectives set out in Making Lung Cancer a fair fight: a blueprint for reform; and
  • Lung Health Advocates: individuals affected by other lung diseases, including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).

We welcome expressions of interest for both programs, however; only Lung Cancer Advocates and PAH Lung Health Advocates have a training program scheduled for 2020. Other condition specific advocacy programs will be developed based on demand and resourcing.

We accept expressions of interest to participate in the program throughout the year. Our 2020 training program will commence in the second half of 2020.
