LinkAge and Macmillan Advisory Group

Are you 55+ and been affected by cancer? 

LinkAge is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to do more for older people affected by cancer. We are looking for enthusiastic older people to advise LinkAge on how we can best support older people to get the most from LinkAge activities through their cancer journey.

Evidence has shown that keeping active is very important for people dealing with cancer. Not only can it reduce the symptoms of cancer, it can aid recovery and reduce the risk of occurrence too.

Through the Macmillan Prevention and Re-enablement project here at LinkAge, by supporting those affected by cancer, we aim to connect them with positive and fun activities that are available across the city.

To ensure that we are providing the most suitable support to individuals, we aim to further our learning from an Advisory Group of individuals with direct experience of cancer diagnosis.

To register your interest or find out more, please contact Sally on 0117 353 3042 or by Monday 20th June.
