OUR TRUSTEES

Our Trustees manage the charity, but it is our volunteers in local areas that hold committee meetings, organise events and fundraise, and communicate with local members. Some are prepared to share their own experiences with others who are about to face similar challenges.

HOW DO WE RECRUIT VOLUNTEERS?

In line with best practice, volunteers are recruited formally by following our volunteer recruitment process. We aim to safeguard both our volunteers and the people they work with. This includes completing an application form including references and, if applicable, a DBS check. Potential volunteers will be invited to an informal discussion about their interests and the scope for volunteering. If we are not able to offer a volunteer a role within the charity, we will write to the volunteer and explain why.

About Us

Keeping Abreast was established in September 2007 by patients Anna Beckingham and Beverley Birritteri and Breast Reconstruction nurse specialist Ruth Harcourt. They recognised a great need for women, both newly diagnosed with breast cancer and facing the possibility of mastectomy, and also women further down the line who are also considering reconstructive surgery, to be able to meet and talk to other women who have been through similar experiences. This allows women make an informed choice about whether or not to proceed with breast reconstruction.
