Charity information

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust

Each year in the UK over 3,200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 890 will lose their lives. In addition 220,000 women are told they have a cervical abnormality that might require treatment.

We are the UK’s only charity dedicated to those affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. We provide a range of support and information, both online & face to face and campaign for change & improvements in care, treatment, support, awareness & access to prevention programmes.

Founded 1999

  • Mission statement

    The charity was established in 1999 by James Maxwell following the death of his wife Jo, (aged 40), from cervical cancer. Since then we have provided advice and support to tens of thousands of women and their families. Our mission is to see cervical cancer prevented and to reduce the impact for everyone affected.

    We work to achieve this by offering a range of support and information both online and face-to-face, 24 hours a day. Our support services include a Helpline; online forum; local Support; awareness programmes; an ‘Ask the Expert’ medical submissions service; ‘Let’s Meet’ patient events; and a range of information materials written and reviewed by medical experts. We also campaign for the best care and treatment, and run public awareness campaigns to increase uptake of cervical cancer prevention programmes such as cervical screening (smear tests) and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.
