Do you have a passion for reaching out to disadvantaged people to improve access to services? Do you want to work with communities to support timely presentation and uptake in cancer screening?
The Bridge Renewal Trust is a local charity that is working with North Central London Cancer Alliance and other voluntary organisations to deliver activities to tackle inequalities for specific patient groups that are identified as having (or at risk of having) poor outcomes in the most deprived wards in Haringey and Enfield. This aligns with the work across north central London, to diagnose cancers earlier including for ethnic minority patients as well as reduce the gap in outcomes for people living in the most deprived neighbourhoods compared to those in the least deprived neighbourhoods.
