Macmillan Cancer Support has been working in Doncaster for over two years to improve cancer survivorship services locally. Local people living with and beyond cancer are at the heart of the services that are being developed by the ‘Doncaster Cancer Survivorship’ project. People affected by cancer spoke of a lack of information, advice and support from the point of cancer diagnosis to recovery. The Living Well service has grown out of this project and shows real integration of Health & Social Care and Voluntary Sector services.
Meeting New Horizons offer a personalised service to meet individual needs. They can arrange home visits to assist with claiming state benefits and applying for benefits and grants. Their community team can signpost to quality assured organisations that offer appropriate help, support & services. All partner groups have been awarded the survivor friendly quality mark.
Cancer Buddies is a unique service supported by Doncaster Council and Macmillan Cancer Support, it is available to all residents within the borough. The Cancer Buddies team offer 1 to 1 emotional support, a chance to talk to someone who has been on a similar cancer journey and support for carers. It has a network of volunteers across various age groups.
