Jo's cervical cancer trust

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting women and their families affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. We offer a range of information and support both online and face to face 24 hours a day and at every step of the journey. We also raise awareness about how cervical cancer can be prevented and campaign for best care and treatment and to lower incidence of the disease.

Information

We provide comprehensive, easy to understand information about cervical cancer, cervical abnormalities and their subsequent treatments all of which is accredited by the Information Standard and reviewed regularly by medical experts.

Support

Our services include:
* An online forum offering women the chance to build friendships and mutual support.
* An Ask The Expert service allowing people to submit questions to our panel of medical professionals.
* Local Support Groups which enable women to meet face to face with others also diagnosed with cervical cancer.
* A freephone helpline manned by trained volunteers who have had personal or professional experience of cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities

How your funds will help us:


Women V Cancer has made an incredible difference to the work of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. We now have eight staff which has enabled our support and information services to grow and develop; for example we are now able to keep our helpline open for more hours each day and take more calls. Here are some more examples of how your fundraising will help us:

£100 will allow us to answer five calls to our Helpline and offer vital confidential support and information

£400 will enable us to train a volunteer to run a local group, providing personal face-to-face support to women living with cervical cancer

£1,000 will allow us to print and distribute 10,000 materials for health professionals to give to their patients

£4,000 could help us fund Let’s Meet, our annual information day enabling us to bring together women affected by cervical cancer, helping them build vital networks and share experiences.
