Our Services

Our amazing volunteers are your pals

Our volunteers understand the needs of someone that has cancer and how this can affect their own lives as well as their families. We can offer support, companionship, empathy and a listening ear to any cancer patient from the start of their cancer journey through to the end. All of our volunteers are based in the Milton Keynes University Hospital, and all services are offered within this vicinity.

Our volunteers can help you by...

  • Sitting and chatting with you whilst you are receiving treatment
  • Visiting you on the ward and helping you with anything while you are in hospital 
  • Signposting you to relevant services that could help you and your family. 
  • Talking to you about everyday things and treating you as an individual, not just focusing on your condition.
  • Talking to medical professionals, with your consent, if you are too upset to do so
  • Chatting on the phone in between hospital visits 
  • Helping and supporting you and your family at end of life.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined
