Breast Cancer UK Ambassador Programme
Want to help prevent breast cancer?
By becoming a Breast Cancer UK Ambassador, you can help both women and men reduce their risk of breast cancer.
Are you passionate about living a healthy lifestyle?
Do you believe more could be done to actually prevent breast cancer – not just diagnose and treat it?
Do you want to do more to help your family, friends and local communities live a healthier life?
Do you have a few hours to spare each month and want to put it to good use?
If you can say yes to all of the above, then we need you as one of our Breast Cancer UK Ambassadors, to reach out into local communities and help people reduce their risk of breast cancer.
What’s the Breast Cancer UK Ambassador scheme all about?
We focus on breast cancer prevention and we believe much more can be done to highlight the prevention message and help people to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer.
We are recruiting Ambassadors from across the country to offer talks and events in local communities to highlight the risk factors linked to breast cancer and to provide tips on how people can reduce their risk.
What does it take to be a Breast Cancer UK Ambassador?
Above all we’re looking for people like us, who want to help to prevent breast cancer – now and in the future. You may have had breast cancer yourself, or someone close to you may have had the disease or you may simply want to help people live healthier lives.
You will need to commit around 1-2 hours of free time a month and are willing to go out into your local community to talk about simple ways in which people can reduce their risk. Please read through these Questions and Answers to make sure you have fully understood the role of an Ambassador.
What support and training will we be given?
Once appointed as a local Ambassador, we’ll invite you to a training day (we hold two a year in May and November in Birmingham as a central location) where we’ll cover everything you need to know and provide you with all the materials you need to take out our message.
What do our Ambassadors say?
Here are some words from a few of our existing Ambassadors:
"I am extremely proud to be an Ambassador for BCUK to help spread the word to as many people as possible about the harmful chemicals that are used in our daily lives that are linked to breast cancer. I learnt so much from the one day course amongst a group of empathetic women and would urge as many people as possible to join the BCUK and share the knowledge". Paula Gander
“Prevention is better than cure” is a great motto and it is also what makes Breast Cancer UK great. As an Ambassador I can now be part of a movement to empower people to make their life better. I love it and people who listen to my talks love it too – or at least it gets them thinking. Join us and get empowering!” Janet Wilson
"Several individuals close to me have suffered and are suffering from breast cancer, I feel a need to dispel some of the myths in relation to cancer and give guidance in an evidence-based manner on reducing one’s risk of this disease." Darryl Edwards
