Communities Against Cancer

Calling all voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations in Dorset!

Action Hampshire are inviting you to join their Communities Against Cancer project. This is about helping people understand how they can reduce their risk of cancer, raise awareness of symptoms and support people to overcome barriers to seeking help early. They want to improve early diagnosis of cancer when treatment is more likely to be successful.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for cancer awareness and prevention projects. This could fit in with work you are already delivering or be a new piece of work. Action Hampshire particularly want to reach groups who face challenges to looking after their own health or experience health inequalities. You don't need to know about cancer to apply.

To enable you to feel more confident in communicating cancer awareness messages, you can attend their free 2 part Zoom cancer awareness workshops. These are open to all in the VCSE sector so please book on if you would like to learn more. Dates available in November and in the new year.

For more information about applying for a grant available or to book on to Cancer awareness Zoom workshops please email Claire Vincent, Project Coordinator:
