Improving the Cancer Journey Social Prescriber

Are you affected by cancer? Would you like help connecting to supportive non-clinical care?

Who do we support and how does it work?

We help anyone affected by cancer. This includes when you have cancer and when you care for someone with cancer. You can be a family member or friend, or you might be a professional carer.  Our service is here to help connect you to supportive non-clinical care in your local area.

 We know a lot about how cancer affects people. We also know about the services in your area that can:

  • Provide support during difficult times
  • Ease money worries because we understand the impact cancer can have on your finances
  • Bring kindness through social connection
  • Help you move more because this can increase your energy levels and help you to maintain the daily activities that are important to you
  • Help you sleep better because good sleep helps you cope better
  • and reduce anxiety because we want you to live life as fully as you can

Our link workers in Dundee City, Perth & Kinross and Angus will listen to your concerns and find out what matters to you. We can discuss your options together and guide you towards the support you need. Depending on what you need and want, we can offer advice, share information, and make referrals to the right services.

We provide support over the phone, face to face in the local community or online via video calls.
