Family Support Officer
Childhood Cancer Support provides a dedicated staff member to provide family support and referrals to suitable support networks to those families affected by childhood cancer. Our Family Support Officer provides family support and referrals to suitable support networks and ensures that all on-site resources, services and activities are delivered in a timely manner to support Childhood Cancer Support families and staff and Childhood Cancer Support events and activities throughout the year.
Family Support Pack
When a family is referred to Childhood Cancer Support, our Family Support Officer will welcome the family and provide them with a family support pack. This complimentary pack includes practical items such as breakfast cereals, tea, coffee, and milk etc.
Regional Support Networks
When families have been away from their houses, pets and loved ones for weeks, months or even years, it is not unusual when returning “home” that it can be a rather daunting reality. As a means of supporting our regional families when they leave, Childhood Cancer Support can assist families to stay in touch with each other and with our organisation should they so desire. We want to ensure our families continue to feel supported even after treatment is over and they return home. Our Family Support Officer and our Ambassador in your region can provide you with more information if you wish to stay in touch or need extra support when you are back at home.
