Shout at Cancer charity to receive Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS).

Each year, outstanding examples of volunteering work are celebrated through the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS). Equivalent to an MBE, QAVS are the highest awards given to charities in the UK, and they are awarded for life. 

Exciting news for Shout at Cancer to have received this honour. Launched in 2015, it's the only charity in the world specialising in the use of music to help speech recovery and social reintegration after laryngectomy, the surgical removal of the voice box.

For Shout at Cancer music is a motivational tool to rebuild voice and confidence, and an instrument to facilitate public education and engagement.
