About Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust is based in London and provides information and support to women affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. It also raises awareness of prevention programmes and campaigns for best care and treatment.

Eight UK women are diagnosed with cervical cancer daily and three will lose their lives. Research commissioned by the charity has shown that if screening uptake increased from its current level of 78 per cent to 85 per cent, numbers diagnosed would drop by 14 per cent in one year and the NHS would save £9 million annually.

What the judges said:

Its drive and accomplishments over the past five years are very impressive. Jo's has influenced and pushed the agenda showing dedication to excellence in a single field. It demonstrates a good use of social media and they work hard to reach those that most need their services.
