Living with and Beyond Cancer – Cancer Support Volunteers

Our work around Living with and Beyond Cancer has taken some major steps forward.

Firstly, our recent call for volunteers has been very successful and our volunteer numbers are set to increase.  Volunteer training will be taking place in mid-June, so we will be able to offer our service more widely.

Secondly Macmillan Cancer Support will be supporting us through dual badging for all the volunteers.  This will give the service recognition and an element of trust for those using the service, and will allow volunteers to access the online support and training that Macmillan are able to offer.  Cumbria CVS and Macmillan will be monitoring the development and activity of the service during the coming months with a view to sharing good practice and building sustainability for the future.
