Support service for East Londoners affected by cancer improves wellbeing and understanding of where to go for support

Two million people are living with or beyond cancer in the UK, a figure that will rise to four million by 2030. The Bromley by Bow Centre and Macmillan Cancer Support partnered to pilot an innovative response to this challenge. This month, they published the findings of their recent evaluation which looks to understand the impact the service had on those living with and beyond cancer. The key finding from the evaluation was that the Macmillan Social Prescribing Service improved clients’ knowledge of where to go for non-medical support and their wellbeing.
