It’s a cause for celebration that more people than ever are surviving after a cancer diagnosis but we know the impact of cancer doesn’t suddenly stop during treatment and when treatment is over.


Age UK Sunderland are recruiting volunteers to support our Living Well and Beyond Cancer Programme across Sunderland to support people to live well with a cancer diagnosis.

As a volunteer you can help those with a cancer diagnosis to:

  • Improved Lifestyle Choices & Social Support
  • Attaining help with dealing with the emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis
  • Financial advice
  • Access to activities to improve their Physical Health
  • Advocacy services to give people with a diagnosis a voice

As a Volunteer you will need good listening skills and a sensitive and caring approach. You will be supporting patients in hospital, community settings or in the home by offering tailored support to encourage them to address and where possible self-manage their recovery.
