We are working to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer far and wide. We want to emphasise how important it is to go to your GP if you have persistent symptoms that are unusual for you.

Our aim is to empower all people born with ovaries with the knowledge to speak to their GP if they have unusual symptoms.

We know that it can be more difficult to access reliable information and support for people whose first or preferred language is not English. That is why we have created leaflets and short informative films in 6 community languages widely spoken in the UK: Polish, Punjabi, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati and Arabic.

Could you help us by sharing these resources as widely as possible? To request printed ovarian cancer awareness leaflets in any of our community languages, fill in the form below, contact [email protected], or call 0800 008 7054.

To produce these resources, we worked with local women and community groups Sampad, the Yemeni Community Association, the European Welfare Association and Near Neighbours.

It is owing to funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, that we were able to produce these resources and deliver our November campaign. Many thanks to HM Government for making this possible.
