It’s a Cancer Research UK training programme to help community health workers and volunteers feel confident promoting healthy lifestyles and the importance of spotting cancer early.

Talking about cancer isn’t always easy, so we’re here to guide you on what to say and how to say it. The Talk Cancer programme is all about communication, sharing experiences and recognising how much of a difference you can make if you have the right tools and knowledge.

It’s designed for anyone who’s able to promote health and wellbeing in their community, such as voluntary sector staff and volunteers, front-line public health and local authority staff, health trainers, practice staff and pharmacy teams.
