Raise awareness

Find out how you can raise awareness of ovarian cancer by using our resources and learn how raising awareness can save lives.

Raising awareness of ovarian cancer is vital in improving early diagnosis. Currently, just one in five women can name bloating as a symptom of ovarian cancer. We need to change that.

Will you help us raise awareness of ovarian cancer and help us save lives?

By working with us online to raise awareness, you could help us share the symptoms with many more women. Knowing the symptoms and when to visit the GP can vastly improve early diagnosis and save lives.


You can raise awareness through campaigning by encouraging others to share the symptoms on social media and in your community.

As well as lobbying for a national awareness campaign, we work to get our awareness materials out into local communities, schools, GP practices and pharmacies. 

By joining us as a campaigner you can help us make an even bigger impact within your community and with key decision-makers. Our campaigning toolkit has a range of other ways you can get involved to make sure your voice is heard and help us raise awareness on a larger scale.

Share symptoms information in person

Raise awareness among your community and order your awareness materials. We offer a range of posters, leaflets, pin badges and more to help you spread the word.

You can also download and deliver our awareness talk on ovarian cancer to your community group, club or work colleagues to raise awareness.

Raising awareness for GPs

It's also essential that GPs are trained to spot ovarian cancer symptoms at the earliest opportunity, and are able to either diagnose or rule it out quickly. We present at GP training days, give out GP toolkits, and offer online training modules for GPs to update their knowledge on early diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
