Volunteer with us

Become a Nippling Ambassador

Volunteers who join us will be an extension of our mission and act as Ambassadors in their community on behalf of the Nipple Innovation Project. You will be one of our Nipplings!!

Nipplings are a group of volunteers who are keen to spread the message of the Nipple Innovation Project far and wide.

These would be members of the community, breast cancer survivors, ‘previvors’ ladies and men who have had preventative surgery, people who have had a breast cancer scare or have been deeply affected by breast cancer in some way and understand the importance of feeling ‘whole’ again after multiple surgeries.

We’re looking to grow our support system through the Nipple Innovation Project and create a community of breast cancer survivors who we can support following mastectomy surgery.
We hear of so so many breast cancer survivors who are left with no nipples for many years, often shunned or feeling like a burden to the NHS for asking to have a repeat top up.
We want to support these incredible warriors and let them know it’s perfectly ok for them to ask for more, they are not a burden and they deserve to feel whole again in the most empowering way possible.
We need help in spreading our message as still many breast cancer survivors do not know this specialist mastectomy tattoo service exists.
