More about Macmillan in South East Wales
In addition to our fundraising staff, there are also 12 volunteer fundraising committees and groups across South East Wales helping to raise vital funds to support local people affected by cancer.
More than 120,000 people are currently living with cancer in Wales. They all need treatment and support, which Macmillan provides with:
Health specialists: People in South East Wales benefit from 70 Macmillan health professionals, including Macmillan nurses, GP facilitators, pharmacists, dieticians, benefit advisors and specialist radiographers.
Someone to talk to: Macmillan is here for people with cancer and their families and friends to talk to, listen and understand what they are going through. Macmillan supports a network of several self help and support groups across South East Wales.
Financial help: Having cancer can bring extra costs – hospital parking, travel expenses, extra heating and different clothes. Last year we gave approximately £343,000 in Macmillan grants in South East Wales to 727 people to help with some of these costs.
Clear information: Having the right information about cancer at the right time is essential. Our phonelines provide free information and emotional support for people living with cancer. Information is also available from Macmillan health professionals and cancer information specialist nurses.
All of our services are provided free, and are funded entirely through the generosity of our supporters. Macmillan currently helps one in two people affected by cancer. Our ambition is to reach all two million. We can work together to raise vital funds to continue to develop local services, which include:
A lung cancer nurse specialist at Nevill Hall Hospital, Abergavenny.
A palliative care nurse specialist at The Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport.
A haematology clinical nurse specialist at The Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport.
Merthyr Tydfil, Cynon Valley and South Powys
