Breast Cancer Now
Role and Opportunity Details (To apply for this role you must be 18+)
Moving Forward – We understand that a person’s need for support doesn’t end when treatment finishes. Our Moving Forward services and information are for anyone living with and beyond breast cancer, helping them approach life after treatment with increased confidence.
You will be supporting a Moving Forward Facilitator at the course. Typical tasks may include welcoming participants, actively listening during group discussions and proactively contributing your own insights, when appropriate.
Specific Skills Required.
Moving Forward volunteers need to have had a personal diagnosis of primary breast cancer. We suggest that you are at least 6 months past the finish of active (hospital-based) treatment when applying, as we want to make sure this is the right time for you to be providing support for others. You also need to be a confident and skilled communicator who is empathetic and understanding.
Benefits of Volunteering with this organisation
During a Moving Forward course the facilitator will have oversight of the smooth running of the course.
As a Moving Forward volunteer, you can make a difference by actively engaging with the participants’ discussions, as well as being available to offer support to them throughout the course – something our service users tell us is essential to their experience.
