Support group volunteers

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust support groups"Volunteering as a support group leader is just so rewarding and you make a real difference to women's lives".

Emmeline, Peterborough support group leader.

Do you have good organisational skills, enjoy meeting new people and want to help women affected by cervical cancer?

We're looking for volunteers to join our support groups as volunteer co-leaders in Belfast, Cardiff, Leeds, Norwich, Manchester, Peterborough and the West Midlands.

Support groups offer the opportunity for women affected by cervical cancer to meet others in their community. It's an ideal environment for providing reliable information and mutual support, allowing group attendees to discover possible coping strategies, solutions to concerns and a place to make friends and be heard.

Being a support group leader can be very rewarding. You will be in an ideal position to help others and become more involved with Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust activities. For just a few hours a month you can make a real difference to the lives of local women living with or beyond a cervical cancer diagnosis.

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust welcomes volunteers from across the UK and we do our best to treat everyone equally and inclusively from all backgrounds.

"Having already used information on Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust's website I thought that starting a support group was a great way to offer support and offer women the opportunity to share their experiences and feel supported in what they are going through."
Claire, Bristol support group leader.

If you think you have the qualities to provide this important support to others, please read the Volunteering to be a support group leader fact sheet for more information. If we feel the volunteering opportunity is not right for you, we'll let you know and talk to you about other volunteer roles that you may be more suited to.

Please email your completed application form to [email protected]

Our next annual volunteer training weekend will be held from 5pm on Friday 18 November to midday Sunday 20 November 2016.

If you don't have time to volunteer at the moment, or you can't find a suitable opportunity in your area, there are lots of other ways to support our work; fundraising, sharing your story or becoming a member of Jo's Voices.
