Be Clear On Cancer

Be Cancer SAFE in Barnsley

Become a Cancer Champion – learn more

Cancer Champions are ordinary people who help to spread awareness about cancer.  They share with others as part of their everyday life simple cancer messages.

Learn more about cancer, cancer screening, signs and symptoms and turn that understanding into action. It’s really easy to do!

Become a Cancer Ambassador – be more

Cancer Ambassadors represent an organisation, group or community.  Ambassadors ‘champion’ Be Cancer Safe messages as part of their existing role.

Ambassadors will be supported by the Project Workers to reach members of their network with key information and to embed cancer messages within the culture of the organisation where appropriate.  In some instances Cancer Ambassadors will be cancer survivors who as part of their journey with cancer choose to share their story with others.

If you are passionate about empowering others to take control of their own health the team would love to hear from you.

About Be Cancer SAFE

From April 2019 Be Cancer SAFE will continue with local funding from Barnsley CCG and Rotherham CCG.  Moving forward, the social movement model will be explored and where appropriate applied to other areas of health improvement beyond the cancer agenda.

Voluntary Action Rotherham employs two Project Workers for the Barnsley area and two Project Workers for the Rotherham area.  Contact a member of the team to discuss how you can get involved and/or to explore options for bringing Be Cancer Safe messages to your group, team or community.
