We really need your help!

Hi Everyone
I hope you’re all enjoying the wonderful 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.

Helpline
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.

Support Groups
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, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Hull, Leeds, Oxford, Peterborough

We are also looking for group leaders to start a group in the South West of England in key areas e.g. Truro.

We would also consider launching groups in Birmingham, Liverpool, Southampton or Swansea if volunteers come forward.

Volunteering
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 that you are sufficiently recovered to support others, we’d love to hear from you.

Best wishes

I would be willing to offer my time as I would have appreciated more available advice at the time of my diagnosis, stage 2.
