  • feel confident in seeking help
  • reduce their cancer risk.

Free Cancer Champion training is available for grant applicants.

Areas covered for the grant are Southampton (and surrounding areas), Portsmouth (and surrounding areas), Isle of Wight, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Weymouth and Portland.
