About the Programme

We know that many people living with or beyond cancer have unmet needs particularly at the end of treatment and these effects can have a significant impact on people’s quality of life. The Co-ordinated Community Care Programme’s aim is to:

  • raise awareness of existing services in the community,
  • identify unmet needs and
  • work with community care programmes to address these.

 

  • With your help we would like to improve the services available in local communities for people affected by cancer.
