Helpline volunteer

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." 
Sue, Helpline Volunteer

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

We're looking for volunteers nationwide 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.

Helpline volunteers offer reliable information, friendly support and useful signposting to women, their families and friends affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities.

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

We welcome volunteers from across the UK and we do our best to treat everyone equally and inclusively from all backgrounds.

"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."
Gill, Helpline volunteer

If you think you'd be a good person in this important role of helping others, please read the Volunteering to be a helpliner fact sheet and our volunteering policy. 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 send your completed application form to [email protected]

Our next annual volunteer training weekend will be held in Birmingham from 4pm on Friday 17 November to midday on Sunday 19 November 2017.

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; fundraisingsharing your story or becoming a member of Jo's Voices.
