Macmillan Telephone Buddies
Macmillan Telephone Buddies: There is now a new free service, developed to support people living with and affected by cancer at this difficult time –Macmillan Telephone Buddies.
Going through cancer can be an isolating experience at any time, and especially when social distancing. Their Telephone Buddy Service offers a listening ear, befriending and signposting to Macmillan services and other local and national sources of further support. A trained and understanding volunteer will be matched up with someone who would benefit from their support, providing a weekly call – arranged at times to suit both parties. Also of interest to those wishing to receive support.
