Cardiff University is looking to recruit a team of five community champions living in Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board area to help with a new study called TIC-TOC, which is funded by Cancer Research Wales.

The six month public campaign aims to raise awareness of vague cancer symptoms and support people to seek advice from their GP with these symptoms, ultimately with the aim to improve cancer outcomes.

They are looking for people who are:

  • based in the Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board area (Rhondda, Taff Ely, Merthyr, Cynon and Bridgend);
  • connected with or are willing to connect with a range of social groups, organisations and clubs in the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area;
  • enthusiastic, friendly and approachable and who like meeting new people;
  • feel able to approach people to talk about cancer (we will provide training to help you with this);
  • have access to a computer and are computer literate (some events may need to be held online due to COVID-19 restrictions);
  • self-motivated.
