From first cervical screening to living with, and beyond, cancer Jo’s is just a call away. Our vision is for cervical cancer to be a thing of the past but, until we get there, we want everyone to have the support they need. As the UK’s leading cervical cancer charity we were established over twenty years ago when Jo Maxwell could not get the support and information she and her family needed when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Sadly Jo passed away but then, as now, at the heart of what we do is listening to the voices of women and people with a cervix, using this to shape services we and others deliver , advocating for change and improvements to the care and treatment of those affected by cervical cancer, HPV and cell changes.

This is an exciting time to join as Chair of our Charity. We are developing our new long-term strategy with the aim of eliminating cervical cancer in the UK and are looking for a Chair who has the vision, energy and drive to lead us in that aim. As we enter this new and exciting phase of growth we need a Chairperson who will lead and drive our ambitious plans, ensuring they are fulfilled.

Jo’s welcomes everyone regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, race, disability or background and we strive to make our workplace an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome, accepted and valued. Those that use our services come from all walks of life and so do we; we want our Board to be reflective of the communities we should support. We want great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our organisation stronger.
