*Due to Covid-19 please phone or email us to check our opening times and availability before visiting our Centre.* Macmillan Support Services include an Information and Support service, a Befriending service and a Bereavement support service. All services are accessible to adults affected by cancer or a life limiting illness, including carers living in North Tyneside and Northumberland. Anyone may contact the service for information. We also provide a range of support groups and events. For Befriending or Bereavement Support a referral from a health professional is required. On receipt of the referral a member of the team will visit the person within their own home. They will then identify the most appropriate support based on their individual needs at the time of the visit. Each person who would benefit from someone to talk to on a one to one basis will be allocated an appropriately trained and supervised volunteer. Volunteers offer a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental relationship, which can assist the person through a difficult time.
