Macmillan Community Helpers Scheme

Macmillan Community Helpers is a volunteer-led service providing practical and emotional support to cancer patients and their carers.

Volunteers can make a huge difference by providing help tailored to individual needs.

Support could include:

  • light housework or gardening
  • shopping or running errands
  • walking the dog
  • having a chat and a cup of tea
  • support over the phone
  • signposting to other relevant support services.

To use the service, you must be aged over 18, be affected by cancer and have a need for the service (eg. lack of support networks or difficulty coping with practical tasks at home).

Please note, volunteers will not be able to provide assistance with personal care.
