Description

Macmillan Crossroads Kent & Medway Volunteer Service

 At Macmillan Crossroads Care Kent & Medway Volunteer Service, we support people affected by cancer and their carers. Our team provide quality information and guidance, along with a helpful assessment process to understand what support is needed. Currently our volunteers provide:

 Practical support includes helping out around the home or garden, getting a bit of shopping.  Volunteers often accompany people to their treatment appointments reducing their anxiety on how to get there along with companionship whilst waiting.

 Emotional support is where people affected by cancer have the chance to talk to someone who offers an empathetic and kind ear. 

 Companionship is a wonderful chance to truly be there for someone in a genuine and companionable way.  All three areas of support reduce loneliness and social isolation of individuals affected by cancer and their carers.

If you would like any more information, please call us on 03450 956701 option 3 or email us at: enquiries.macmillan@crossroadskent.org
