Get involved with the Roadshow
Our services have the most impact when we work closely with the local communities we’re in. Whether you’re interested in volunteering or working alongside us in a health professional role, we would love to hear from you.
Our Health Awareness Volunteer initiative came to life in 2012. We now have volunteers on our North East, North West and London units. They hand out leaflets, share our key messages and help encourage visitors to come on board. Our volunteers are a really important part of the Roadshow team and they have helped us to reach even more people in the community.
Meet our volunteers
Alex is a breast cancer survivor and has been volunteering on the Roadshow since 2012. Her personal experience of cancer means she is passionate about spreading the word about early detection in the communities we visit.
Dave, one of our volunteers in the North West of England, who is living with oesophageal cancer, has been helping out on the Cancer Awareness Roadshow since 2015.
Interested in volunteering?
We’re looking for people who are interested in raising awareness of cancer in their local community. You’ll need to be able to communicate clearly and engage with lots of different people. You don’t need any previous experience or knowledge – just the enthusiasm and willingness to learn.
It’s a great way to develop your skills, gain experience and make a difference. You’ll get to meet new people and become part of a supportive, friendly team. All our volunteers receive full cancer awareness training and ongoing support from our Cancer Awareness Nurses.
We are currently recruiting for volunteers to support our 2019 Cancer Awareness activity in London, Scotland and the North East. As a Health Awareness Volunteer, you will encourage members of the public to come onboard the Roadshow and help to inform the local community about how to reduce their risk of cancer. By volunteering with us, you will help us widen our local reach by spreading these vitally important health messages.
To apply fill out an application form by the 26th of March:
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work closely with public health partners in each area we visit who help signpost people to local services. So far more than 1,000 local health staff have joined us, including stop smoking advisors, health trainers and screening nurses.
Our activity offers a unique opportunity for you to access key groups within your community, as well as learn more about cancer prevention and early detection. If you work in public health in your area, we’d love to hear from you.
