Our Awareness Initiatives

One in seven women will experience breast cancer in their lifetime. Future Dreams promotes initiatives that promote early detection and diagnosis and wants everyone to be taught from an early age how to self check and be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

On average, we will spend more than one third of our lives at work. The importance of creating positive working environments that support the physical, mental and emotional health of all employees is therefore paramount. Our Breast Health Masterclasses help to empower your employees to prioritise their health.

The Breast Health Masterclass can be delivered in-person or virtually by our experienced team comprising of Future Dreams Charity representatives, healthcare professionals, and breast cancer patients.

Every session is bespoke, tailored to your requirements and can include:

  • Future Dreams breast cancer resources
  • Self-checking demo
  • Guidance on what to do if you notice anything new
  • How to support a family member, friend or colleague
  • Signposting to Future Dreams House breast cancer support centre for online and in-person support
  • Q&A

Follow up workshops can be arranged to cover a broader range of specialist speakers and subjects for example, fertility, as secondary breast cancer, menopause, mental health, nutrition and exercise, and returning to work/HR.

For more information please contact Amanda Hanison.

"The guidance you offered on how to 'Know Your Normal' and check monthly for changes was fantastic and something I am going to adopt. If one person can be spared the ordeal of breast cancer because of this awareness session that that will be an achievement."

"What seemed like a good idea, turned out to be a life saver. Making the time to join your masterclass was one of the most important decisions I have ever made, probably the most important as it turned out. Watching the highly interesting, informative and well-delivered session meant I caught my breast cancer early. I've now had surgery to remove the cancer and I'm about to start radiotherapy, all within weeks of making that decision to take a lunchbreak and learn properly about regularly checking your breasts."

Being breast aware saves lives

In 2019, 51 women found early signs of breast cancer as a result of the Change + Check campaign launched by Future Dreams in partnership with ITV’s Lorraine Show and our ambassador Helen Addis (otherwise known as The Titty Gritty).  The stickers continue to be displayed in changing rooms across the country and in thousands of online shopping deliveries by brand partners every year.

Let’s Nail Breast Cancer

Every October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Future Dreams invites nail technicians and beauty salons to help raise vital funds for our Let’s Nail Breast Cancer campaign. You can donate when you book with participating salons or pay for your treatment. All money raised will go directly towards breast cancer support, awareness and research.

Fighting breast cancer is a cause that has always united the nail industry. Let’s Nail Breast Cancer was founded by Louella Belle’s Lisa Crook in collaboration with Rene Lipsitz of RE:NEW beauty and Susan Gerrard of Gerrard International. Sadly Lisa and Rene passed away from breast cancer in 2017 and 2015 respectively.

Interested in getting involved this October?

Donate to those touched by BREAST cancer

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone.  Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House.  We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help. Please consider partnering with us or making a donation.
