A member of our team will visit you at home or a place convenient to you to find out exactly what support you would like.

We will work with you to find a way forward, and can provide support across a wide variety of issues including treatment and care, social and financial difficulties, employment issues and can provide a listening ear.

An advocate can be a valuable source of support if you are facing cancer alone. Even if you do have family support, you may find it’s easier to discuss concerns with someone you aren’t close to. 

Sometimes as a carer it can feel as if you are on your own but an advocate on your side can help you feel more in control of your situation.
