Can we stay healthy?

We’re starting a movement, literally. Research has revealed that our communities are smoking and drinking more, and screening less than the general population, and this is putting us at a greater risk of cancer. The question is, can we do something about this?*

*Spoiler alert – yes we can! Discover Can We’s conversations on cancer below.

Bowel Screening

It's time to get your kit together.

When it comes to bowel cancer screening in our communities, we need to get our kit together. If detected early, more than 90% of bowel cancer cases are successfully treated. For those eligible aged 50 to 74, the bowel cancer screening kit is free and delivered right to your door. Despite this, many of us are simply not getting around to doing the test and this is increasing our risk of bowel cancer. Don't delay. Do the test.

Cervical Screening

Your invitation to The Inner Circle.

Every body with a cervix is at risk of cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers, yet studies show that LGBTQ people are less likely than the general population to participate in cervical screening. Having regular Cervical Screening Tests is the best way to protect ourselves against cervical cancer.

Breast Screening

Join Our United Front against breast cancer.

Our communities are drinking and smoking more than the general population, which are real risk factors for breast cancer. But we can do something about this. Our United Front is Can We’s conversation on breast cancer and breast screening, touching on the touchy subject, so that, together, we can stay healthy. Are you in?
