The Macmillan Prevention and Re-enablement Project is looking to work with providers who organise creative, social and physical activities for over 55’s across Bristol.

Currently the project supports anyone aged 55+, who is a cancer patient, have previously had cancer, are bereaved, or a carer for someone with cancer.

  • Promotional Support
    • We will promote your activities where appropriate to service users and at events that the project attends.
  • Activities listed in Project Materials
    • You will have exclusive advertisement of your activities in our project activity guide and on the ‘What’s on in your area’ section of our website.
