The Mouth Cancer Foundation want to hear about the ways you offer support to people that improves the life of those affected by head and neck cancer and to share your work and achievements with others. The Mouth Cancer Foundation understands that local support groups will have different levels of resources and may not have sophisticated processes.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation judges all applicants on the positive impact your support group has on the lives people affected by head and neck cancers. Judges will look for evidence of work that:
- Improves support services to head and neck cancer patients
- Tackles the consequences caused by head and neck cancer treatment
- Offers an opportunity to communicate experience
- Can be replicated across the UK
