Our Cancer Campaigns Ambassadors
Want to do something a little different to beat cancer? Share your passion by becoming an Ambassador today.
What will you do as an Ambassador?
Cancer is political. We need your help to roll out our political campaigns in your local community – persuading decision-makers to bring in new laws and investment in cancer services that will ultimately save lives.
How will you do this?
As an Ambassador, you’ll have the opportunity to gain new skills, meet new people and take part in a range of activities such as:
- writing to and meeting your MP
- promoting our campaign actions online
- engaging your local community in our campaigns
- attending group lobbying events in Parliament
- engaging with local press
In the role profile, we outline that Ambassadors are expected to volunteer between 1-5 days a year. For example, this could be a full day (usually once a year), to come and receive training or meet your MP in Westminster, for example at one of our Parliament days. The rest of the time the role is completely flexible to fit around your current commitments. It could be to take 20 minutes to write a letter to your MP, or 2 minutes to tweet a campaign update, or a few hours to prep and attend a meeting with your MP in your local constituency. There are a range of activities to suit each Ambassador!
Support and training
You don’t need to have experience in political campaigning. We provide you with training materials (such as campaign ‘step by step’ toolkits) and support along the way. All we ask is that you’re passionate about beating cancer sooner.
Our Ambassadors play an important role in all of our campaigns and make a real difference to beating cancer. Read some of their stories to find out why they got involved.
