Just £6 will pay for a meeting room for a peer support group for an hour.



Just £20 will fund training a volunteer for the Macmillan Beyond Diagnosis service (providing emotional support for those affected by cancer.)



£75 will pay for a meeting room once a month for half a year for a self help group.


As a charity we rely on grants and donations to fund much of the work we do directly with self help groups.  Your donation would provide valuable resources for both new and established groups for people affected by cancer and other long term health conditions, including mental health issues.  Pmembers of self help groups support each other to find hope and share practical advice to manage their symptoms and find coping strategies. Your help will enable us to support a wide range of groups, many of whom face stigma and discrimination.

If you would like to donate to a particular project e.g. Beyond Diagnosis Service - a befriending service for people affected by cancer, please let us know.
