Going through cancer can be a lonely and isolating experience at any time, and the Coronavirus pandemic has made life even more difficult for many people affected by cancer. If you are living with or beyond cancer, you are the family, friend or carer of someone with cancer, or if you are bereaved, our telephone support volunteers are here for you. You’ll be contacted by a specially trained volunteer who will provide emotional, practical and financial support to ensure you don't feel alone. Volunteers will be a listening ear, ready to talk about how you’re feeling during this difficult time. Free, expert and easy to understand information about cancer can also be provided to help answer any questions you have. Volunteers will be able to refer you into our partner organisations for further support, and to talk about what is available to you and the people you care about. If you need to talk, we're here to listen. Calls can be made on a regular basis and are arranged on each individual’s preferences.
