This service is funded by Macmillan Cancer Support as part of a 12 month pilot set up by the Tower Hamlets Macmillan Local Authority Partnership Programme (THMLAPP).

The service will offer person-centred, practical support to people affected by cancer, during their treatment by:

  • Ensuring that the home environment is safe, clean and comfortable
  • Organising practical support – e.g. personal care, household tasks, support with pets, children or other dependents
  • Planning ahead for the treatment schedule
  • Providing reassurance and reducing anxiety
  • Signposting and referring to other holistic support services in the community, or adult social care if needed

It will support people with cancer who are:

  • 18 years and over
  • Residents of Tower Hamlets
  • Currently undergoing surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment
  • Worried about how they will cope with the immediate consequences of treatment, and may have a limited support network of family and friends.
