The role

Our campaigners help save lives through political action.

So far, they've helped secure additional funding for cancer tests and radiotherapy machines, protected young people from the harms of tobacco through the introduction of plain, standardised cigarette packaging, and got children's obesity on the political agenda.

You can be part of our next success by becoming an e-campaigner. 

Why we need you

We need volunteers like you to make sure your politicians prioritise cancer.

Join over 40,000 online campaigners saving lives through taking political action online a few minutes a month.

Every action helps to beat cancer. Use your voice to speak out on cancer issues important to you.

What you'll be doing

Influencing Government can be as easy as clicking a button! 

You'll take political action online for just a few minutes each month.We'll email you quick and easy activities each month, include signing petitions and emailing your local politicians. You'll complete the requested action at a time to suit you, ensuring that any deadline is met. 

Every action helps to beat cancer. Use your voice to speak out on cancer issues important to you.

Your commitment and location

You can be an e-Campaigner anywhere across the UK, where you have a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop connected to mobile data or WIFI.
