Cancer Champions

Become a Cancer Champion by taking part in one of our free awareness sessions. 

No skills, qualifications or any specialised knowledge of cancer is required to take part in Cancer Champion training. Our free awareness sessions teach people about the key facts, statistics, symptoms and screenings which are linked to a number of cancers.

Cancer Champions are equipped with the knowledge needed to raise awareness about cancer, engage in conversations which could help to reduce the risk of cancer and encourage early diagnosis of cancer – when treatment could be simpler and more successful.

To take part in a Cancer Champion awareness session, sign up to one of the future sessions listed below or register your interest.

Testimonials

The Cancer Champion programme is an important way of cascading cancer information to a wider group. Since becoming a Cancer Champion, I have shared the leaflets provided at the training with my work team.

I found the training very helpful and tell everyone about what I learnt on the course.

More people need to attend this training - I don't think people realise their value.

Being able to talk freely about all cancers with family, friends and others that we meet each day is really important.

The session was very informative and would encourage community groups to book onto the course to raise awareness of cancer.

Considering the subject matter, the session was very enjoyable and informative - I learnt a great deal.

Many thanks for your session with us at York Racecourse. The delivery was superb and the content was extremely useful, informative and even surprising in parts. If only every human being could go through the training.
