We do this by

  1. 01 Distributing grants to help groups run activities and increasing their knowledge and skills
  2. 02 Delivering cancer screening awareness sessions to those communities who are less likely to take up screening based on research and local evidence
  3. 03 Building a social movement of Cancer Champions, producing newsletters, holding networking events and sharing success stories
  4. 04 Providing training which helps individuals, group or organisations to share messages about cancer within their community.
  5. 05 Ensure Stakeholder Engagement by holding regular meetings, events and distributing ebulletins and other communications
  6. 06 Asking employers to pledge to allow their staff time off or flexible working to attend cancer screening under the Bee Seen, Get Screened campaign.
