About the opportunity

Evidence shows that being overweight or obese increases people’s risk of cancer, yet public awareness of this link is low. We believe this is an important message to communicate, but we’re aware that it’s also a sensitive one.

Through our health marketing and information we hope to raise public awareness so that people can make informed lifestyle choices. In our policy campaigns we’re also keen to address childhood obesity, as we know that that being obese as a child increases your risk of being overweight or obese as an adult.

If you have an interest in public health come along to our small, friendly and informal focus group and influence these important areas of our work. We’d particularly like to hear the views of parents to inform our policy activity. Your insight will help us shape our key messages so that they are clear, sensitive and impactful.

To register your interest please contact the team by emailing involvement@cancer.org.uk and we’ll send you more details. We can also be reached on 0203 469 8777.
