At the heart of our work is our commitment to "helping you find the support you need when cancer affects your life".

We understand that every cancer journey is unique, and the type of support needed can vary greatly from person to person. That's why our Cancer Card Support Directory is designed to provide personalised guidance and referrals to a wide range of services. Through our support directory, we aim to make the often overwhelming process of finding appropriate assistance as easy and stress-free as possible. By providing this personalised service, we can ensure that no one has to navigate the complex landscape of cancer support alone.

Cancer Card is NHS Approved and proudly takes its place on the NHS inform website, Scotland's national health information service. NHS inform aims to provide the people in Scotland with accurate and relevant information to help them make informed decisions about their own health and the health of the people they care for.

This marks an important milestone for Cancer Card as we are now recognised by the NHS as a trusted source of information for cancer patients in Scotland. It's a testament to the quality and reliability of our support directory and the vital role it plays in connecting people affected by cancer to the help they need.

Our directory includes a diverse array of charities and services, catering to the varied needs of those affected by cancer. From well-known national organisations like Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie and Maggie's, to smaller local initiatives like Meadowbank Car 4 U (a free, friendly hospital transport service for cancer patients in Falkirk) and Love Po (a charity offering free gifts and experiences to bring a smile to those living with cancer), our directory covers a broad spectrum of support.

We recognise that while the larger, national charities provide invaluable resources, the smaller, local services are equally crucial in providing targeted, community-based assistance. By including both in our directory, we ensure our users can be connected with the most relevant support for their specific needs and location. What sets our directory apart is that we provide this listing service completely free of charge to all charities and non-profit organisations, regardless of their size or resources. We believe that every service that's helping those affected by cancer deserves to be easily discoverable and accessible to those who need it. By offering free listings, we ensure that even the smallest, volunteer-run initiatives can be included alongside the larger, national charities.

Whether someone is looking for practical help with transport to hospital, emotional support from others who understand their journey, or a small gesture to brighten their day during a difficult time, our users can draw upon the diverse listings in our directory to provide tailored recommendations.

This commitment to connecting people with the full range of available support, from the national level down to the local community, sets Cancer Card apart. We believe that no need is too big or too small, and that everyone affected by cancer deserves to find the help that's right for them. Our directory is designed to cater to the diverse needs of all those affected by cancer, with a particular focus on ensuring accessibility for those in deprived or rural areas. We work proactively to identify and include local services and grassroots initiatives that can provide vital support to those who may face barriers to accessing mainstream services.

This inclusive approach not only benefits the individuals seeking support, who can access a comprehensive range of services through our directory, but also the charities themselves. For smaller organisations with limited budgets, being listed on our directory provides valuable exposure and helps them reach more of the people they aim to serve.
