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.
The Inclusion team
We have brought together two teams to develop a sustainable and innovative approach to tackling inequalities in cancer care:
User support and involvement team
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.
Equality, human rights and diversity 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.
Our current inclusion projects and activities
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.
We are currently running a number of inclusion projects to help tackle cancer inequalities.
