Meet our Education Advisory Group members, here to support the CoppaFeel! team in reminding, educating and empowering the nation to check their boobs and pecs. We are proud to have their expertise on board to help evaluate, develop and inform our education programmes and resources for schools and young people.
KS4 PSCHE Lead
Bonnie has been passionate about including breast health education on her school’s PSCHE curriculum over the last 6 years, and took part in our #RETHINKCANCER campaign pilot back in 2015.
“I wholeheartedly believe in the CoppaFeel! mission to empower young people with the information that could, one day, save their life!”
NSPCC Schools Service Area Coordinator
Georgia is passionate about PSHE and has led on this at the primary schools she has taught at, as well as visiting schools in a previous role at NSPCC to educate young people on sensitive subjects, such as abuse.
“PSHE Education is making leaps and bounds at the moment. I want to help schools teach the incredible CoppaFeel! message. The School Pack we are developing is an essential tool for schools so they feel equipped to teach cancer education in an inspiring and innovative way.”
House Parent and School Nurse
As a School Nurse and House Parent, Lindsey is in a great position to help CoppaFeel! develop the most effective ways of communicating with young people about boob health.
“If we can educate young people, we can change the way we all think about self checking.”
Rhiannon is an active advocate for developing resources and methods to take away the stigma around cancer education for both teachers and students. Having had a cancer diagnosis herself, Rhiannon has had first hand experience of educating young classes about the topic.
“I feel our responsibility as educators is to empower people and take away the fear of the unknown with the gift of knowledge. I feel like one of the lucky ones who made it out the other side and want to make sure we provide high quality, easy to understand methods of teaching young people about cancer.”
Gemma is passionate about educating and inspiring our youth to have confidence in their minds, bodies and opinions. In her current role as Director of an Apprenticeship Training Provider, Gemma is at the forefront of creating an engaging environment, supporting young people in facing the many varied challenges that life throws at them.
“When my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 I saw first hand how she tried to protect her children from the fear that the word “cancer” can summon – I believe it is essential that we educate young people so they are able to talk openly and honestly about their worries and concerns. If I can play a small part in this and help to spread the word in a fun and engaging way, I’m all for it!”
