Health and Wellbeing Hub
The Health and Wellbeing Hub is a drop in service, anybody is welcome – patients, carers and healthcare professionals – to get information and advice and to see what we can offer.
The Health and Wellbeing Hub will run every Wednesday between 1pm and 7pm.
A registered nurse will be available throughout the session. There will be guided sessions to provide information about topics such as fatigue, breathlessness, advice about exercise, help to complete forms, and guided relaxation. A volunteer will also be available to help people access on-line information and creative therapy materials will be available.
Support for those with life limiting illness.
Call us Monday to Friday: 9am - 4pm 0161 212 4473
A local charity providing emotional support and home-based practical help to people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, along with those closest to them, such as family, friends and carers.
We can offer someone to talk to confidentially about cancer, along with home visits, social events and practical assistance, for example help with shopping, as well as support at hospital appointments.
We works in the Greater Manchester area. Our services are delivered by specially trained volunteers who are managed by a team of professional staff.
What does being there do?
It has a network of trained volunteers who give home-based emotional support and practical help. Services are tailored to each individual or family, but they can include:
- Listening and befriending: talking through difficulties and concerns
- Respite sitting, allowing carers time to themselves
- Practical help such as shopping
- Driving and support for a hospital appointment or treatment
- Social activities, days out, coffee mornings, relaxation sessions
- Group support
- Information about local services and support networks
All support services are currently provided free of charge.
