Are you a hairdresser or barber based in Shropshire or Telford & Wrekin? Our Cancer Champions team are hosting a special training session dedicated to local hairdressers and barbers. Being a Cancer Champion involves having informed everyday conversations within your community and hairdressers and barbers are some of the best placed to do so with the clients treating the salon as a safe space to chat.

Haven’t heard about the Cancer Champions Project? Here is a brief summary of what it is all about…
NHS Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin has partnered with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and Qube to deliver the Cancer Champions project – part of a national NHS England drive to encourage cancer screening uptake and early diagnosis. The project has so far recruited and trained over 170 local people as Cancer Champions who are now having conversations within their community to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of cancer and encourage people to take up cancer screening invitations. For more information about the project and additional training dates, visit www.cancerchampions.co.uk.
