REACH recruits for Team B-Aware

PosterBreast Cancer Care Scotland has teamed up with REACH Community Health Project to recruit volunteers within BME communities across Scotland to join Team B-Aware.

The aim of this campaign is to promote early detection of breast cancer in targeted communities and improve survival rates across the country. The project centres on a team of trained volunteers, Team B-Aware who reach groups in their local communities where detection rates may be poor. This includes women and men with learning difficulties, learning disabilities, mental health issues and people from black and ethnic minority and socially disadvantaged communities.

Full training and the resources for the role are being provided by Breast Cancer Care Scotland. For more information contact Joanne Stewart (click to email), Volunteer Manager at Breast Cancer Care Scotland on 0141 353 8341 orPadam Singh, Training & Development Officer, at REACH on 0141 423 7095.
