The Inclusion team at Macmillan work at both a community and a policy and government level to make a change.
We promote equality, human rights, diversity and user support and involvement through a range of innovative projects, training, grants programmes and guidance to improve the delivery of cancer care and services.
We have brought together two teams to develop a sustainable and innovative approach to tackling inequalities in cancer care:
Leads on UK-wide projects to embed user support and involvement across Macmillan and partner organisations. The team helps people to get involved in Macmillan's user support and involvement activities, influencing and improving local and national health and social care services, and providing new forms of support. Our Cancer Voices, self-help and support groups and grants programmes are all supported by this team.
Leads on ensuring there is a strong link between equality, diversity and human rights and Macmillan’s corporate priorities, and makes it a thought leader on tackling cancer inequalities.
Use your own cancer experience to help Macmillan and other healthcare organisations change the future of cancer care.
Macmillan supports over 900 independent cancer support groups, helping you to talk to people who understand what you're going through.
As well as grants for self-help and support groups| , Macmillan can help with grants for inclusion user involvement| .
We are currently running a number of inclusion projects to help tackle cancer inequalities.
I live on the edge of Bradford, in the Walf Valley, in a semi-rural area. The NHS catchment area is the size of London and there are more sheep than people. I had to travel 50 miles to my local hospital. They are thinking of moving the service to Bradford, which is a further 12 miles. Macmillan Cancer Voice
