How does the scheme work?
The aim of the project is to support people with cancer at any point along their journey. It also aims to support the wider family network.
The scheme is for anyone with cancer, or those supporting them in Wokingham and the surrounding areas. The project will bring together information and resources as well as offer emotional support through a volunteer network, offering a listening ear.
Monthly meet-ups are also available, bringing together people in the community affected by cancer, giving them the opportunity to meet each other and share experiences. People can access the service through a referral. This may be through a GP, health professional, family member or self-referral. Click here to access our referral form which you can complete and send to us either through the post or via email… Alternatively, send us a message using the form below if you have any other questions.

We aim to provide a cancer support network that is community based, in and around Wokingham, but you can also find support and information from us via social media…
We work alongside other resources bringing together a range of services to enable people in the local community to find the support they need in one place.
The service is delivered through the Community Navigation Scheme as the main contact point from Monday – Friday, 9.30am – 4pm. Alternatively there is an online resource via Facebook and Twitter. If you would like information about volunteering for the scheme please contact Vickie Randall on 01344 304404 or Vickie.Randall@involve.community .
