Talk Cancer: cancer awareness training programme

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We know that this is an especially worrying time so we have created a key messages document for Health Professionals focussed on safety netting patients presenting with symptoms during the coronavirus outbreak. We have also created a page on the subject specifically for patients on our about cancer hub. We will update that information as guidance changes.

As the coronavirus outbreak continues we're listening to the advice of the UK Government carefully. We'll be postponing all our Talk Cancer face-to-face workshops until further notice. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers and the public are our top priority. We’re still available to answer any queries about workshops on the contact details as above, plus our free online course is open to join.

Do you want to feel confident to have effective conversations about cancer and health that could help save lives?

Talking more openly about how people can reduce their risk of cancer and spotting cancer early could help save thousands of lives. 

If you’re someone who’s able to promote health and well-being in your community - whether you’re a healthcare professional, work or volunteer in your community or are in any role where you discuss health with others - you have the power to make a difference. 

Our training will help you to:

  • Talk to people about how they could reduce their risk of getting cancer
  • Help people understand the importance of spotting cancer early and the screening programmes available
  • Have effective, supportive conversations about health in general and encourage people to take positive action for their health

There are various training options available to suit different needs, including a number of funded face-to-face workshops for groups who are eligible. You can check your group's eligibility for a free workshop here
