This reason, even during the current pandemic, it is vital that we seek advice for unusual changes in our bodies and health and attend screening programmes when invited.
Speak Up Against Cancer raises awareness of cancer signs and symptoms and screening programmes, across the city. We give people the confidence and tools they need to attend screening appointments, recognise the signs and symptoms of cancer, and to overcome barriers to getting help when it is needed.
Delivered in a positive, informal, engaging way, our approachable and friendly project team will also offer one to one post-session follow up support (as appropriate) to any participants who may have concerns or further questions. Volunteers will also share their personal experience of early detection of cancer, inspiring others to take notice of changes in their bodies and seek support.
Which of the following options are most suitable for your group(s)?
- Online Speak Up Tailored Group Presentations; delivered to groups of any size, will last up to an hour, and tailored to the needs of your group.
- Online Speak Up Short Talks; dropping into existing group online activities that you are offering, to deliver a short talk on cancer awareness.
- Community Organisation Staff and Volunteer Training; we can deliver cancer awareness short talks or longer presentations to your staff and volunteer teams to raise awareness of screening programmes and cancer signs and symptoms to inform work with service users.
Sessions can be hosted by Albion in the Community via Zoom or delivered on the platform of your choice if you are hosting.
Funded by Brighton and Hove City Council Public Health and Brighton and Hove CCG, the programme is available at no cost to participants or host organisations.
