    Cancer Council SA Community Ambassador Project

    Cancer Council SA is seeking Community Ambassadors for our new Aboriginal Cancer Screening Project to increase awareness of, and participation in, the free National Cancer Screening Programs to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a greater chance at preventing or surviving a cancer diagnosis.

    The Aboriginal Cancer Screening Project requires 12 Community Ambassadors to support the delivery of Yarning Circles across Adelaide.

    As a Community Ambassador you will:

    • Be trained to talk about cancer; 
    • Be paid to deliver Yarning Circles in your local community; and 
    • Encourage your community to participate in relevant cancer screening programs.

    And most importantly, you will join Cancer Council SA’s Aboriginal Programs Team as we work to reduce the impact of cancer in our Aboriginal community.

    If you are interested in participating and can say YES to the following:

    • I identify as Aboriginal; 
    • I am 50 years of age or older; 
    • I have, or am willing to, participate in cancer screening;
    • I live in Adelaide’s northern, western or southern suburbs; and
    • I am passionate about improving Aboriginal health 

    Then we want you to join our team to see a cancer free future for our mob.

    For more information or to register your interest, contact Aboriginal Programs Coordinator Nathan Rigney on 8291 4289 or email nrigney@cancersa.org.au
