Financial support and looking after yourself | 18th January 2021 | 13:00 - 14:00

Parveen Chatha, Macmillan Welfare Benefits Caseworker and Carol Hughes, Macmillan Counsellor

I've been diagnosed with primary bone cancer/ a bone tumour, what financial support is available to me?

I’m finding it hard dealing with my diagnosis, what can I do to help myself cope?

How am I going to find time to look for financial help when I have treatment to get through?

We understand the impact of a primary bone cancer/ bone tumour diagnosis. We are hosting an information session via Zoom alongside experts, Parveen (Macmillan Welfare Benefits Caseworker) and Carol (Macmillan Counsellor) who will be providing help and advice about what financial support is available to you and how to look after yourself following a diagnosis of primary bone cancer. During the session there will be a live Q&A where you will have an opportunity to ask our experts a question.

Grab a cuppa, pull up a chair and join us. Monday 18th January may be #BlueMonday but we are here for you.

Changing Faces | 21st January 2021 | 13:00 - 14:00

Julie Carr & Sam Killick

Changing Faces is a national charity offering support to anyone with a visible difference. Their team in the North of England, based in Sheffield, are funded to work with 0-18-year olds. As part of their work, Julie and Sam offer 1-1 well being support sessions and bespoke workshops for children, parents and siblings affected by a visible difference in their lives.

From young people with scars on their legs, limb differences, skin conditions, birthmarks and congenital conditions, Changing Faces work closely with those affected by feelings of social anxiety, social isolation, fear of being judged negatively, low confidence and self-esteem.

Julie and Sam will be touching upon what their work entails and how they involve exploring thoughts and feelings to improve confidence levels and social skills.
