Older People Living with Cancer

Peer advocates supporting older people affected by cancer

Volunteer peer advocates on film

1 Comment

We think that the second of our Older People’s Cancer Voices films really well captures the passion, experience and knowledge of our volunteer peer advocates, as well as giving a flavour of what to expect when becoming a volunteer yourself.

We recently had two guest blog posts on the Big Lottery Fund blog featuring volunteers talking about their motivations for getting involved in the Cancer, Older People and Advocacy programme, and how they themselves benefit from their volunteering role.

We wanted to bring to life this unique volunteering role, and OPAAL and our project partners could not deliver the Cancer, Older People and Advocacy programme without the support and dedication of our volunteers, so this films is about highlighting and celebrating all that they do:

A big thanks to all of our volunteers, and we hope to welcome new older people affected by cancer on board, to find out if we have a service in your area see the About Us page of this blog.

We’ll be back tomorrow with our film aimed at health professionals.

Ang Broadbridge, OPAAL
