Speak Up Against Cancer - Albion in the Community

The Speak Up Against Cancer team includes many volunteers who have had an experience of early detection of cancer. It works with people living and working in the areas of highest deprivation, where rates of cancer are often at their highest.

Albion in the Community’s Speak Up Against Cancer programme raises awareness of cancer, giving 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.

Sessions are delivered by our friendly team that includes volunteers who have survived cancer.

Volunteers share their personal experience of early detection of cancer, inspiring others to take notice of changes in their bodies and seek support.

Our current online and free cancer awareness support for businesses, groups and community organisations includes:

  • Tailored presentations; delivered to groups of any size for up to an hour.
  • Online Speak Up short talks; dropping into existing online group activity to deliver a short talk on cancer awareness.
  • Community organisation staff and volunteer training; delivering cancer awareness talks to teams to raise awareness of screening programmes and cancer signs and symptoms to inform work with service users.

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.
