Our trained cancer advocates support people affected by cancer to help them resolve difficulties which may be cancer related or general life difficulties. Our advocates can:
- help people ask for what they want and ensure their views are understood
- access information and explain it
- help explore options
- support individuals to make their own informed choices
- help individuals to access services and support
