Volunteer on our Roadshow

Over 5 weeks from the 18th June 2018, we will be visiting high streets and retail parks on our first ever Scottish-focussed Be Cervix Savvy information Roadshow.

Our Roadshow will be travelling across Scotland to ensure more people know:

  • What cervical screening is, what to expect at the test and the role it plays in preventing cervical cancer
  • About cervical cancer and how to spot the signs and symptoms
  • Who can have the HPV vaccine and why

We’re looking for volunteers to join us on the Roadshow

If you think you could spare some time to join us to talk to members of the public about roadshow volunteerscervical cancer and how it can be prevented then we would love to hear from you!

This is a very flexible volunteer role and you will have the opportunity to select which locations and times you can attend so you can fit your volunteering round your existing commitments. All we ask is that you can commit to three hours in one of our 6 locations:

  • Aberdeen

What will you be doing?

As a Roadshow Volunteer you will be talking to people who come on to the unit who may have questions, have concerns or just want some information.

Before joining the Roadshow you will attend training in Glasgow on Saturday 9th June where we will provide you with full training about what to expect, how to answer difficult questions and make sure you have all the facts and information you will need to be a Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust Roadshow Volunteer.

Some of the things you might be doing include:

  • Handing out information leaflets
