Macmillan Telephone Buddies

If you need to talk about your cancer, we’re here to listen.

With a weekly call from one of our Telephone Buddies,

you don’t have to face cancer alone.

How a Telephone Buddy helps

Going through cancer can be an isolating experience at

any time, and especially when social distancing. Our free

Telephone Buddy service is here for you. We’ll match

you with someone who understands what you’re going

through, and they’ll give you a weekly call.

Your volunteer buddy will be a listening ear, ready to talk

about how you’re feeling and your support needs during

this difficult time. They can also let you know about our

other services, and all the ways Macmillan can help, so

you don’t have to face cancer alone.

This has offered me company and emotional support

that wasn’t available to me previously.
