Practical help and support groups

The Macmillan Social Prescribing Service supports people living with and beyond cancer to improve their wellbeing. Experienced professionals based in the community help people affected by cancer on a one-to-one basis. Advisors and patients work together to explore patients’ practical needs and personal goals, including getting back to work, becoming more active and socialising by helping them access local services, such as work and welfare advice, and activities such as walking groups, art and gardening groups.

Group supports adults, patients, carers, relatives, young adults with cancer (over 18), men, women, bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender and religious groups
