Throughout the year, Business in the Community runs a series of one-hour, bite-sized, topical learning sessions for your employees.

Your employer's premises
These sessions are delivered in your workplace by experts in areas of particular interest to your workforce.
We allocate a month in the year, and you choose a day and time that suits. Once confirmed, the expert provider will liaise with you directly. All you need to do is advertise the session and provide a suitable place for it to take place.
Every year around 1,100 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in Northern Ireland and around 400 people die from the disease. However, bowel cancer is treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early.
A key part of Bowel Cancer UK’s work in Northern Ireland is delivering bowel health and screening talks. This session is an ideal way to raise awareness of Northern Ireland’s second biggest cancer killer and encourage good bowel health. Trained volunteers, who have been affected by bowel cancer in some way deliver the talks to inform people of the signs and symptoms, risk factors, a healthy lifestyle and bowel cancer screening.
