Become a Regional Ovarian Cancer Co-ordinator
Regional ovarian cancer co-ordinators are volunteers who represent the Ovacome at local and regional level.
ROCCs cover an agreed geographical area, such as a county or a region and lead other supporters, volunteers and fundraisers for Ovacome.
The ROCC is supervised by the Regional Volunteer Manager.
The ROCC's role is to:
1. Represent Ovacome at local and regional level.
2. Manage a list of local Ovacome Fone Friends, contacting them at least every six months.
3. Make contact with a provided list of local Ovacome supporters.
4. Represent Ovacome at local events.
5. Receive donations on behalf of Ovacome.
6. Support local fundraising events organised by the charity's volunteers.
7. Make positive links with local health services used by women with ovarian cancer.
8. Distribute materials supplied by Ovacome to hospitals, clinics, gynaecology and oncology services, nurse specialists and other health professionals.
9. Respond to requests for information from local newspapers and radio.
10. Attend training as required by Ovacome.
11. Keep a formal written record of all work undertaken, telephone calls, emails and letters.
12. Adhere to the procedures and policies of Ovacome.
13. Respect the confidentiality of the organisations and their clients at all times.
We do not necessarily expect you to carry out all these tasks personally. You may wish to form a team of local supporters and delegate some of this work, or you may want to have a deputy to support you. We accept that ROCCs will fulfil the role description in a variety of ways and we will support you in this.
