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, Bracknell 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.
