The aim of our 2018 Lottery-funded Regional Volunteer Project is:
‘To ensure that no patient (or their supporter) should ever have to walk the journey from diagnosis and through treatment alone and without the support of other similarly diagnosed and locally-based patients and their supporters.’
This will be achieved through providing training to volunteers to develop:
- volunteer-led regional peer support group meetings (now)
- in-clinic volunteer representation (future)
