Become a community representative

11207298_1205832166100049_8258248415382763227_nWe need volunteers from across the UK who are passionate about raising awareness and improving survival for pancreatic cancer to support us in our work at a regional level.

Raising the profile of pancreatic cancer within your local area is an fantastic way to help and we really appreciate all the support you can give.

Representing Pancreatic Cancer Action when talking to community organisations, schools and local businesses, you will become an ambassador for the charity supporting our fundraising efforts and helping to spread our awareness messages about the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer in your region.

We will support you with awareness and fundraising materials and practical advice and get you together from time to time so you can meet each other and swap ideas.

Some of the roles Community Representatives may take on:

(and you may have suggestions of your own)

 What skills are needed?

The most important qualification we need is that you have direct experience of pancreatic cancer either as a patient or as a relative or friend of someone who has had pancreatic cancer and that you are passionate about improving early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in order to save lives.

We also need you to have a good knowledge of your local area, that you can communicate well and use your initiative.

For those who intend to help us with pancreatic cancer talks, you will need to feel confident about speaking in front of an audience.

How much time is needed?

As much or as little as you can give – we value any time you can donate to us.

Will I be able to volunteer/work for other organisations?

Absolutely. We will never restrict you from working with other charities and organisations including other charities that focus on pancreatic cancer.
