Age UK Macmillan volunteering project

Age Uk Macmillan is a volunteering project specifically for people over the age of 18 who have or had to deal with cancer and their families, friends and carers.

It is time-limited up to 12 weeks when the person would be signposted to other organisations for longer term support if needed.

It is a befriending service supported by trained volunteers who visit people in their homes to help support them during what can be a very difficult time.

The volunteers can visit for a chat and cup of coffee, escort the person out for a walk or to the shops or whatever they can do to make life easier for them.

We are also able to signpost to other services that may be available and give information on the many aspects of cancer.

We can also help  to access other social groups to help build their confidence and self-esteem.
