Cancer can bring about changes to your physical and mental health. We can advise you on how to manage any practical concerns you may have as a result of your diagnosis.
You may experience practical challenges.
Practical concerns may include:
- I worry about travel costs for my treatment
- I worry about the loss of independence and having to rely on others
- I have immediate, urgent financial concerns
- I’m experiencing changes in my physical appearance
- Who do I talk to? Where do I go for support?
- I feel alone and want to meet like-minded people
We can help you manage practical concerns.
We are here to support you through any of your practical concerns. We are here with you, together at every step – and can help you with:
- Free, safe, travel to your appointments – or cover for travel costs
- Provide Independent Living Support or advice
- Offer urgent hardship grants to cover essential costs
- Give you access to wellbeing workshops
- Provide a safe space for you to meet others in similar situations
