What's new on Cancer Care Map?

 
 

Since launching www.cancercaremap.org at the beginning of February we’ve been able to grow the map now to over 180 organisations with more going on every day.

We know there are many more to add, and we need to hear from you to tell us about support groups and services in your area that you have used, or about an organisation you are involved with yourself that offers help to those living with cancer including friends, families and carers.

Here are just a few of the latest additions to the map:

Working With Cancer

Working With Cancer (WWC) is based in Thames Ditton and works with people and business all over the UK, offering training and support to help people who’ve gone through or are going through cancer treatment to manage work, or return to work following treatment, or find work after a cancer diagnosis. They have a wealth of expertise and experience in the particular needs of those affected by cancer and also supports working carers, colleagues and teams affected by cancer.
