Helpline volunteer

"Being a volunteer has turned my experience of cervical cancer into a positive aspect of my life knowing I'm helping other women." 

Do you have a few hours a month that you could use to help others?helpline volunteer

We're looking for volunteers to help run our Helpline. We're especially interested in hearing from people who would be able to volunteer on the helpline during the day.

We're after warm and supportive people who have experience either professionally or personally of either cervical abnormalities or cervical cancer. 

“Bless you and the services you provide, I have called the helpline a few times and every time I have spoken to someone, you have all been wonderful. I can’t thank you enough for what you do.” 

What do our Helpline volunteers do?

Helpline volunteers offer reliable information, friendly support and useful signposting to those affected by cervical cancer and cell changes (abnormalities), and those with questions about cervical screening, and HPV.

Being a helpliner allows you to make a real difference to those in need of information and support. The interpersonal skills you will develop will also be valuable to you in all areas of your life, and we will also continue to develop you throughout the year.

Going through cervical cancer or cell changes (abnormalities) can be very isolating and sometimes it's just good to hear a friendly voice. Could you be that voice?

If you you're interested in becoming a helpliner please read the role description.

Key Facts

  • Helpliners work from their home, so it doesn’t matter where you live; we welcome volunteers from across the UK
  • Volunteers need to be able to commit to six hours a month, and a minimum of one year commitment
  • Volunteers must be able to listen with empathy, and help empower our callers
  • Helpliners must have a personal, or professional experience of cervical cancer, or cell changes (abnormalities)
  • We provide you with all the necessary training, and support you throughout your role

"Volunteering for me is about passing on my knowledge, experience, love and care to all those women who have this miserable disease and ensure that when they ring off they are smiling, feeling better about themselves and understand much more about their situation."

Our next annual training weekend is in November 2019, so please do apply as we would love to hear from you, but we won't be having interviews for the role until May/June 2019 time.
