Launched in 2018, Cancer Council’s Yarning Circles, held as a part of the Aboriginal Cancer Screening Program and funded by Adelaide PHN, provide an opportunity for people in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to have face to face, open discussions about cancer.
The Yarning Circles are run by trained Aboriginal Community Ambassadors and touch on topics including cancer screening, cancer risk factors.
In the sessions Community Ambassadors also correct common cancer myths and answer questions.
Enabling people to have a yarn and discuss their concerns face to face helps to connect with the community and break down any barriers or fears that may exist with regards to cancer.
