Empowering people to tackle cancer and take up screenings across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Powys.

The driving force behind Cancer Champions

Lingen Davies Cancer Fund has joined forces with Qube in Oswestry to deliver the Cancer Champions campaign across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. This is part of a wider programme of work that’s being delivered nationally called Core20PLUS.
In March 2023 Lingen Davies launched an additional Cancer Champion campaign in Powys – as part of the charity’s growth in the region.

The Core20PLUS programme builds on work previously done by NHS England to address health inequalities and deliver meaningful change. It builds on many community-based, and often volunteer-lead initiatives, to reach out into areas most in need of support to access health services including cancer screening invitations.

The Shropshire and Telford cancer Champions campaign is funded through Wave 1 of the NHS England and NHS Improvement Core20PLUS Connectors Programme. It focuses on cancer, cancer screening uptake, early diagnosis awareness and prevention. The project partners are NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council, as well as delivery partners Lingen Davies Cancer Fund (Telford) and Qube (Shropshire).
