Practical Help and Support Group

*All meetings are held virtually at present due to Covid-19* Wolo Foundation help families living in Sussex through their cancer journeys. They support them by offering practical help and support to make their day-to-day lives easier. They work with local businesses and communities to offer families a wealth of services to support them through their diagnosis, treatment and beyond. Wolo (which stands for ‘We Only Live Once’) registered with the Charities Commission in March 2020. Their constitution document lists their sole objective is; ‘The relief of financial hardship of families* living in Sussex that are affected by cancer through the provision of goods/services which they could not otherwise afford through lack of means, or by providing or paying for items, services or facilities through the provision of goods or services. *Definition of ‘families’ is those with a child or children aged under 16 years at the time of diagnosis.’ Set up by a Seaford family following a cancer diagnosis of their own; they discovered a real lack of services within the support networks they were directed to following diagnosis. With treatment now completed and life getting back to normal, they set up Wolo Foundation to help fill the void they so needed - by offering practical support and services within the local community to help other families affected by cancer. To date they have helped many local families through their cancer journeys by supporting them by offering practical help and support to make their day-to-day lives easier. They are working hard to establish relationships with local businesses, residents and volunteers within the community to offer families a wealth of services to support them at what is, a very stressful time. Wolo support families upon diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. Every cancer journey is different, and so the support Wolo can offer varies hugely. Wolo work hard to support everyone in a family to help make living with the disease that little bit easier. Having something to look forward to or jobs done that they do not need to worry about gives them more opportunities to focus on spending time together, and to make the most of each other. Wolo stands for ‘We Only Live Once’, and it is something they strongly believe in - to make the most of every moment as life is so precious.
