Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative

Practical help and support groups

The Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative (WICCI) is a registered local charity. As a charity we have developed a unique partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to address needs and provide support for specific issues faced by cancer patients and their families throughout the Western Isles. Up to £500 per year is available to individuals affected by cancer and can be used to support costs such as; basic living expenses, travel costs (over and above those supported by Patient Travel) and specialist equipment or support required as a result of a cancer diagnosis, treatment or recovery. We also offer a range of complimentary therapies and counselling through the WICCI Centre for those affected by cancer. Find us on social media @wiccioffice
