This report is about a project working with sixth formers in east London to test a different way of sharing health messages about early detection of cancer. The college setting gave the opportunity to share health messages both peer-to-peer and between two generations of young people and parents. Beating Cancer at School and College is an account of the project and a resource for those planning early detection projects in their own communities. It contains detail about the resources and approaches used which we hope will prove useful and help to save more lives.
