Russian Cancer Support Group

Practical help and support groups

We will use Multilingual interpreter at each session where people with cancer or their carers will be able to take part in discussions, interact with different health & social care speakers, visit different community groups to develop links. We will also work on building confidence and motivating volunteers to learn how to arrange and facilitate group meetings, so they can be self-sufficient in the future to run the group.We hope to be able to reach “hard to engage with” people from Eastern Europe. We will engage with Eastern European cancer patients & their carers who are isolated and don’t access services available locally due to language and cultural barrier. We aim to bring professionals from Health & social care to the groups meetings and using multilingual facilitators to get the message across. Volunteer’s expenses will be used for trips to other groups where they can learn from each other. Leaflets and posters will also be produced in both English and East European languages regarding the content of each of the sessions and information about how they can attend.

Group meets at different venues and takes part in health & wellbeing activities. Check with group leader for venue day and times.
