Breast Cancer Awareness online session 2.30-3.30pm (Microsoft Teams)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. It mainly affects women, however men can get it also. Learn about the sign and symptoms, the importance of early diagnosis, screening eligibility and how to be more ‘Breast Aware’.
More than 200 females in Brighton and Hove are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Found early, cancer can be cured, treated, managed and lived with.
The Speak Up Against Cancer team are working to raise awareness of the importance of the breast & cervical screening programmes and self-checking, as well as early signs and symptoms. The team are fully trained, local volunteers with an experience of cancer. They believe that the power of lived experience is extremely powerful and are keen to hear from other local people whose cancer was caught early and successfully treated.

Whether you are working from home, deployed to another role in the Council, needing to continue your usual work in the community with social distancing safety measures, or unable to work right now, there is a need to be aware of your personal resilience.
This highly interactive session will give you the opportunity to reflect on your current resilience levels, learn some tips on looking after yourself during the COVID19 crisis, and discuss with others aspects of resilience that are particularly important in these difficult times.
This new session is open to any member of staff who has supervisory responsibility, and is interested in developing their compassionate leadership skills.
Find out how you can adapt your leadership style to help those around you flourish during times of uncertainty. As some staff start to return to the office and others continue to work from home we are all going through another phase of adjustment. If you have supervisory responsibilities, or you work with staff across the organisation, you can support people’s wellbeing by developing your compassionate leadership skills.
The session will be give you valuable time away from emails and day to day work, for an opportunity to think and reflect. It is a group coaching experience, rather than a training course.
