Ways to volunteer

Register to become a member and join a current study

Make a difference to the health of other twins as well as the whole community. Our members primarily volunteer for research studies. We thank you because without this support our research would not be possible.

Volunteer to help at special twin events

Sometimes TRA holds special twin events like forums, seminars, and festivals. It’s great to have help with setting up, meeting and greeting guests, assisting at a twin research exhibit etc – and to meet other twins and the TRA team.

Become a media personality for the day

As you know, there is a fascination with twins, and we regularly receive requests from the media seeking twins for articles. If you are happy to be interviewed, perhaps about your help in a twin research study, please let us know. It helps us to spread the word about the importance of twins to medical advances.

Become a fundraiser

You may like to hold a morning tea at your work, your book club, your twins’ school or sporting club, or join in a fun run and be sponsored by friends – the possibilities are endless to help in small ways that make a big difference. Let us know how we can support you.

Encourage other twins to join in

If you encounter other twins in your daily life, please encourage them to join you in twin research. As a TRA member, you are the ideal person to explain what it involves, how to register, and why you enjoy it.

Register your interest
