CLAN Cancer Support offers clients a range of practical and emotional support at our Support & Wellbeing Centres across the North East, including Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
Support volunteers currently help a wide range of people affected by cancer, including clients, carers and other family members, by offering a listening ear or by working alongside them to address support or wellbeing concerns. CLAN Support Volunteers are a key point of contact for clients accessing CLAN services ensuring that the needs of our clients are met through our range of support services. Support Volunteers also offer clients an opportunity to talk with someone who can listen and provide emotional and wellbeing support. Support is given either in person or on the telephone.
Some locations also run group support sessions where support volunteers are required to support the running of the groups and provide support to participants.
Volunteers are asked to make a minimum 3 hour per week commitment. Times are flexible and sessions are available in -- Forres, Buckie, Lossie and Elgin.
As ambassadors for CLAN, our volunteers can also help with the promotion of our services by attending awareness events and doing talks to a variety of groups internally and externally.
