Local group meetings coming up in October and November

Hi Everyone,


Now we are in October, I think we are definitely heading in to Autumn  (where has the summer gone!) It might be the right time for you to come along to one of our local groups, have a cuppa, and meet others in your area that are living with or beyond a cervical cancer diagnosis.


The support groups are a friendly supportive environment run by trained and welcoming volunteers who have either personal or professional experience of cervical cancer. The groups are a great way to meet other women who have been through a similar experience to you. The meetings are very informal and will give you a chance to discuss your experiences, as well as listen to arrange of guest speakers talk on relevant topics. There are also socials and fundraising opportunities to get involved with too!


We are also excited to announce that our West Midlands support group will now be meeting on Saturday in central Birmingham. To find out more about this and all our other groups, please just visit http://www.jostrust.org.uk/support/support-groups and fill in the online registration form.

Hi do you ever hold a support group in Portsmouth? Thanks

Hi Leanne, 

Thank you so much for your message. Unfortunately we don't have a group running in Portsmouth, the nearest group to you would be our Brighton group. If this isn't too much of a distance you would be more than welcome to come along to the meetings. 

Let me know if you would like anymore details about the group.

With very best wishes


Thanks Fran, how often do you meet in Brighton? 


Hi Leanne,

Thank you so much for your message.

The group tend to meet on a bi monthly basis. If you would like to register your interest in the group, the group leaders can then get in contact with you and tell you a bit more about themselves and the meetings. Please just visit to register http://www.jostrust.org.uk/support/support-groups

best wishes



Great I will do thanks Fran xx
