SUPPORT GROUP AWARDS
The biennial Support Group Awards reward the incredible work carried out by cancer support groups across the UK. The awards recognise the support group leaders and healthcare professionals, who give up their spare time to support and work closely with people affected by mouth, head and neck cancers.
Support groups have become a place of solitude for mouth cancer survivors. It is a place where they can share their experiences, and ask questions in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It is also a place where carers, relatives and friends can go for help and advice. The Mouth Cancer Foundation recognises the impact that they have and how they can help improve a patient’s quality of life.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation has a lot of success working with many head and neck cancer support groups across the country and feels it is important to recognise their hard work and achievements. Every two years the charity gives away three grants of £1500, £1000 and £500.
The Support Group Awards 2019 will launch towards the end of 2018. Please contact us nearer the time for an application form.
The charity is looking for support groups which can highlight local accessible support that has a positive impact on the quality of life of patients, their families and carers.
