  • Co-production acknowledges that people with ‘lived experience’ of a particular condition, are often best placed to advise on what support and services will make a positive difference to their lives.

    The Macmillan Mental Health Cancer Care project is looking for people interested in working alongside the Project Lead to produce recommendations to improve the experience of people living with a mental health condition and affected by cancer. This is an exciting new opportunity to help improve future experiences

    The recommendations to be developed will be focussed on three areas:

    • Referral processes - what information is shared at referral and what happens to it
    • Training and development – what are the gaps in cancer and mental health services regarding cancer and mental health awareness. Identification of current training provision available
    • Information – critically analyse written information offered to patients on diagnosis. Offer suggestions for improvements to make written information more accessible

    Role Purpose:

    To support the Macmillan Mental Health Cancer Care Project Lead to develop recommendations to improve the experience of people living with mental health conditions and affected by cancer.

Volunteering has helped me massively

I naturally see the potential in others and hope to instil confidence and self belief in them so that they can achieve too. Becoming a volunteer has shown that people have trust, faith and belief in me and this has made a massive difference to me, a huge difference, an incredible boost.

Volunteer and help others

You can help yourself through depression and anxiety by helping other people and volunteering yourself. I've really found that the 'helpers high' I get makes me feel so much better about myself.
