Cervical screening (smear test) is one of the best ways a woman can reduce her risk of cervical cancer. It's free on the NHS, yet in the UK, one out of four women do not attend their cervical screening so raising public awareness of ways to prevent cervical cancer is really important.
With cervical screening attendance falling for younger and older women it is even more important for us to keep finding opportunities to raise awareness among different ages and groups of women.
You can order materials from us free of charge. You could give them out to female friends, take them to your local GP surgery or well woman’s clinic. Why not ask your work place if they would like to display information for their employees?
If you're planning a cervical cancer awareness event, we are here to help you make it a success and will try and support you in whatever way we can. We will always provide information materials for events, which can be ordered here.
See our top tips below.
Where possible we would be happy to find an information volunteer or member of our team to help run a stand or provide a presentation at your event/work place. Please note, we are a small team and unfortunately cannot attend every event we are invited to. We prioritise groups of women at higher risk of cervical cancer and areas where cervical screening uptake is low. These groups include women between the age of 25 to 35, and over 50, from ethnic minorities and living in socially disadvantaged areas.
Our information volunteers can provide workshops about cervical cancer awareness, why it is important and what to look out for and how screening can help to prevent cancer.
There are plenty of ways to raise awareness in your local community. Some simple ways to help us make an impact include:
