About us

Our Cancer Awareness Roadshow was founded in 2006 in partnership with Ronan Keating and the Marie Keating Foundation. It plays a vital role in achieving our vision of beating cancer sooner by directly reaching people most in need with tailored health messages, encouraging them to make positive changes to their health and signposting to local health services. The Roadshow currently consists of three mobile units that visit some of the UK's most deprived and diverse communities where cancer incidence and mortality rates are significantly above average. For more information on the Roadshow please see the Cancer Research UK Roadshow Website. Our regular Cancer Awareness Roadshow was developed off the back of the Roadshow in 2015, to enable us to have more in-depth ongoing conversations with people, to help them to sustain change in a supportive environment. The Glasgow activity is a regular indoor Roadshow only model, with a usual pattern of three days a week of Roadshow sites and one admin day.
