I hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine at the moment.
Do you have a few hours a month to support women with either cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities? We’re currently looking for volunteers to join our wonderful and passionate team of volunteers.
Our helpline volunteers commit to a 3 hour shift twice a month. They are trained to answer a wide range of questions and offer support and signposting to women and their loved ones affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. Since the beginning of the year, as a team, we’ve been able to help more than 400 people to feel better informed and supported in the situation their going through.
Our volunteer support group leaders provide support for women who are living with or beyond a cervical diagnosis. They are trained to create a safe and supportive environment for women to meet locally, arrange guest speakers on a wide range of topics, facilitate discussions on relevant issues and also help the group to arrange social events to better connect with one another.
We’re looking for co-leaders to join already established groups to continue to provide support in the following areas; Belfast, Cardiff, Cornwall, Hull, Leeds, Manchester, Peterborough, and the West Midlands
We would also consider launching groups in South London, Liverpool, Southampton or Swansea if volunteers come forward.
All of our volunteers receive training and support to carry out their roles in helping us to reach and support even more women. We make sure that you feel confident in the important contribution you will be making to our work.
If you’ve been affected by cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities and feel able to support others, we’d love to hear from you.
