Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative

Practical help and support groups

WICCI has been established in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support in recognition of the specific issues faced by people affected by cancer in the Western Isles. As a result, the WICCI Social Fund annually receives £70,000 from the funds raised for Macmillan Cancer Support in the Western Isles to help those currently going through cancer treatment. Grants of up to £500 are available to individuals to help with the costs associated with treatment. We also provide a range of complementary therapies and activities. At our base on Cromwell St, Stornoway, we have two treatment rooms and social space to deliver group activities and provide information and support. The services are free and available to anyone affected by cancer. We know cancer affects so much more than the body, so WICCI is here to help you and your family through this time.
