Our volunteer advocates have personal experience of cancer. They are specially trained, supervised and supported and will:
- Give time and listen
- Offer support and understanding
- Find relevant information and explain it
- Help individuals make choices
- Help people speak up
- Look into practical support
If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer advocate then please contact Juanita Williams, you can call on 0121 520 8070 or email at [email protected]
We also recognise the additional needs of those from Black and Minority Ethnic and Lesbian / Gay / Bisexual and Trans communities. We aim to be fully inclusive and especially welcome the contribution and involvement of volunteers from these communities.
