Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust is the UK's leading charity dedicated to those affected by cervical cancer and cell changes (abnormalities). The charity was established in 1999 by James Maxwell following the death of his wife Jo, aged 40, from cervical cancer.
Since then we have provided advice and support to thousands of women and their families.
We offer a range of online and face-to-face support and information including: information materials, a free helpline, online forum, national and regional support days and an ‘ask the expert’ service. Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancer amongst young women (under 35) in the UK and Europe.
Two women a day in the UK will die from cervical cancer whilst over 3,000 women are diagnosed each year. In addition, some 220,000 a year are told they may have a cervical abnormality that may require treatment. Thanks to the NHS Cervical Screening and HPV vaccination programmes cervical cancer is a largely preventable disease. However, for those affected, the impact of cancer on a woman's life and that of her family cannot be overstated.
This is an exciting time to join the charity. In recent years awareness of our work and cervical cancer has grown significantly with annual income from £288k to £1.8m. The staff team has also significantly grown to 23 enabling us to reach more women than ever before.
Over the past few years our work has been recognised a number of times including winning a prestigious GSK IMPACT Award, Best Communications Campaign at the Third Sector Excellence Awards and a Plain English Osborne Memorial Award for our website, we have also achieved Investing in Volunteers accreditation.
