At Tenovus Cancer Care our aims are simple. We want to help prevent, treat and find a cure for cancer.
We do this by offering support, advice and treatment to cancer patients and their loved ones. We also promote healthy lifestyles and fund cancer research to find new ways to prevent it, diagnose it, and treat it.
We do this where it is needed most - right at the heart of the community.
Tenovus Cancer Care’s vision is a future where fewer people get cancer, and those that do have equal access to the best treatment and support.
To bring practical advice, emotional support and treatment to where it matters most; the heart of the community. We help people with cancer and their loved ones cope, and through our vital research, we offer hope.
To deliver this vision, we have agreed a set of 4 strategic aims for the organisation for the next five years. They are:
aim 1 To provide support and treatment to people with cancer and their loved ones, closer to home in unique ways.
aim 2 To represent the needs of people with cancer and their loved ones.
aim 3 To conduct and fund research to improve cancer outcomes and experiences.
aim 4 To work with communities to develop healthy lifestyle programmes raising awareness of how to prevent cancer.
Why not make your spare time count? Tenovus Cancer Care has a great opportunity for you. Come and volunteer at a friendly charity shop. As a Customer Service Assistant you’ll be the welcoming face in the shop looking after our customers. Without you we couldn’t fund our research and services.

Many tasks within the shop involve standing or sitting for periods, handling bags and donations from the public and there may be stairs to climb depending on which shop you’re based in. If you have any concerns about this, please speak with the Shop Manager when expressing your interest in volunteering.
We know time is precious and we’re grateful for any time you give. Ideally we look for around four hours a week. We’re very flexible and can work around your needs, even if this is just an hour of your time. Let us know what you can do in the application form.
