What is Community Engagement?
Our work in the community informs people about the support offered by The Mulberry Centre. It also raises awareness about the signs and symptoms of different types of cancer and ways in which people can adopt preventive measures (e.g. diet, exercise, giving up smoking, attending routine screening) to lessen their chances of developing cancer. We provide information on the following:
● How to reduce risks of cancer
● The importance of attending screening
● How to identify signs and symptoms
● The support available to people affected by cancer
Some of our outreach activities include:
● Running information desks at various venues (e.g. GP surgeries and libraries) and events (e.g. borough health awareness days)
● Giving presentations to groups of people in the local community (e.g. rotary, faith groups, schools)
● Giving presentations to service and support providers (e.g. health care providers, social care providers and charities) to allow them to signpost clients to The Mulberry Centre for support.
If you know of any groups or venues who might benefit from an outreach presentation or an information roadshow, please contact email@example.com
