Tips for raising awareness locally

There are plenty of ways to raise awareness in your local community. Some simple ways to help us make an impact include:

  • Displaying our posters, leaflets and booklets in GP surgeries, hospitals or your local library
  • Distributing our leaflets at your university or college
  • Asking if your employer would allow posters to be put up e.g. in women's toilets
  • Handing out leaflets to your female friends and family members.

If you're feeling a little more ambitious, you could:

  • Run a stand or table with leaflets at your local hospital
  • Run a girls night in pampering event and use it as a chance to raise awareness about the importance of cervical screening to your female friends
  • Organise an event on behalf of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.

If you are planning to run an information stand at an event you might want to consider the following: 

  • Information materials - have you ordered your information materials from Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust? Think about who the event is aimed at and order the most appropriate information materials to display
  • Displaying the materials - display the materials in a logical order keeping them neat, attractive and uncluttered. You may also want to order some balloons to add more attention to your stand
  • Engage with people - people may not always come over to you so it is important to attract people’s attention. You may want to hand some leaflets to passersby to engage them in conversation and explain what you are doing.
  • Where will you have a stand? You could organise opportunities to have an information stand for your work place or at your local community centre. Why not ask your local supermarket if they will let you have a stand to raise awareness?
