Cancer Support Ambassador Certificate of attendance
Cancer Support UK launches new course to train Cancer Support Ambassadors in the workplace

The impact that a cancer diagnosis can have on an individual’s mental health is significant, yet 85% of employees with a cancer diagnosis want to carry on working. This highlights a need for effective support strategies to be put in place by businesses to help colleagues living with cancer. Cancer Support UK has developed a bespoke Cancer Support Ambassador Training programme to train businesses to support employees living with cancer.

A Cancer Kit gave Ruth a big morale boost at a low point in her life – Ruth’s Cancer Kit story

“It’s really important that you are supported both during and after treatment has finished. Because that is the point where everything stops and you’re left wondering what’s going to happen next. The Cancer Kit Ruth received as a result of your donations gave her a big morale boost when she was feeling very low.

Cancer Coach

At Cancer Support UK, we understand that it’s perfectly normal to be left with anxiety and concerns after treatment. When cancer treatment finally finishes, family and friends often expect cancer patients to feel better, but for many, it’s when they feel worst of all. Our Cancer Coach support groups can help.

Your story matters and we want to hear it

Personal stories and experiences are an important way of raising awareness of the work that we do to support cancer patients both practically and emotionally.

We value your voice in helping let more people know about our services. If you have ordered one of our Cancer Kits or participated in our Cancer Coach programme and would like to share your story publicly, we would love to hear from you.
