Become a local community Cancer Champion

Our friends at Healthwatch Wolverhampton are looking for volunteers interested in becoming Cancer Champions in their local community, providing information to the public and encouraging people to attend screenings in order to improve health outcomes.

Delivered by Cancer Research UK trainers with nursing and pharmacy backgrounds, the workshops equip and empower people to raise cancer awareness in their community by:

  • Increasing knowledge of key messages around cancer prevention, screening and early diagnosis
  • Building confidence to talk to the public about cancer
  • Helping encourage people to make lifestyle changes, access local services and visit their GP promptly with any concerns

The training is open to anyone with an interest in promoting health and wellbeing in the community, and can attend all three workshops (details below).
