Bowel Cancer UK have moved their free bowel cancer awareness talks to workplaces online.
It doesn’t matter whether you're a private, public, or third sector organisation you can request a talk.
The talks last approximately 30 minutes and are delivered online by our dedicated team of trained volunteers, many of whom have a personal connection to bowel cancer.
During the talk you will learn important information about bowel cancer, including:
In 2019, we provided approximately 300 bowel cancer awareness talks to organisations throughout the UK, reaching over 3000 people. Raising awareness of bowel cancer in this way is just one of the reasons why our awareness programme was recognised in 2015 with a prestigious award from the Royal Society of Public Health.
Here’s what's been said about our talks
“The feedback from staff was excellent, and they all enjoyed the talk. Your volunteer was very knowledgeable and presented in an enjoyable way. Their personal story helped to make the presentation very real, and I think it will inspire people to look out for the symptoms, change their lifestyle, and ensure they undertake the screening test.“
“It's absolutely fantastic to see awareness of this illness being raised, especially when early detection is possible. My dad sent away his bowel screening kit at the end of last year, which resulted in bowel cancer being detected at a very early stage. It is so important to reinforce completing the screening test – there's absolutely no doubt that this saved my dad’s life.”
“Thank you so much for talking to us. Everyone said it was extremely beneficial and well presented. We are certainly more educated about how important the tests are for early detection and will really encourage people to do them.”
