There are many resources and support services available to help you and your loved one cope with cancer. On this page, we will provide you with information on where to find the right support and guidance you need during this difficult time.
We know that supporting a loved one with cancer can be challenging and emotional, but we're here to provide you with resources and personal experiences from others to help you navigate the world of cancer.
When your spouse is diagnosed with cancer, it can be a life-changing experience for both of you. While it can be a difficult journey, there are things you can do to support your partner through this difficult time.
We're here to make life better for carers. Carers provide unpaid care by looking after an ill, frail or disabled family member, friend or partner. We are the Scottish nation office of Carers UK
Widowed and You (WAY) is the UK's only national charity for people aged 50 or under when their partner died. It offers peer-to-peer support from volunteers who have also experienced the loss, organizes social groups and events, and aims to provide emotional and practical support to all young widowed people.
We hope this information is helpful in pointing you in the right direction for finding the support you need as a partner or carer of someone with cancer. Remember, you are not alone, and there is help available.
