Cavendish Cancer Care - Buddy Scheme

Summary
Our Cancer Buddies are a group of trained volunteers who have either had cancer themselves or have cared for someone with cancer who can phone you or meet face to face to offer some additional support. Because they have been in a similar situation, they can understand what it is like to deal with a cancer diagnosis as a patient or as a partner or family member. This support is free.


Description

We can match you up with someone that can phone you on a regular basis or meet you face to face and have a chat over a coffee. the service is usually provided for up to 6 months, but can be flexible to meet your needs.

We can phone you in the evenings or at weekends if this would be better than during the day
