Working with Cancer

Changing the conversation about work and cancer

What We Do

For people affected by cancer

We provide coaching support and advice for you and can support your partner too. If you are employed, self-employed, a job seeker or a working carer and would like to know more, please contact us.

For employers

Every two minutes someone is diagnosed with cancer and you can expect the incidence of cancer in the workplace to increase. It’s essential that you and your managers are knowledgeable, equipped, and ready to respond. One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime but the good news is that more and more of us are surviving and living with cancer for many years. Being able to work is something that most cancer survivors want to do for many reasons, not least because it provides financial independence, but mainly because it provides a sense of normality. Cancer survivors and working carers are also protected against discrimination in the workplace and the former must be offered reasonable adjustments to return to work.

We can provide you and your team with:

  • Coaching and advice for employees and carers (with unlimited advice for their line managers and HR) affected by cancer to help them successfully return to or remain in work.
  • Consultancy advice for employers on return to work policies and processes, including setting up support groups or buddying networks for those with chronic illnesses or who are returning to work after a period of long-term absence.
  • Training workshops from one hour to half a day in length, including webinars, covering all aspects of managing work and cancer. These are provided for HR professionals, line managers and health professionals.
  • Drop-in Clinics providing advice and guidance to employees affected by cancer including carers.

If you are an employer and want to do what’s best for employees affected by cancer, please contact us.

For health professionals

We run a wide variety of training workshops for health professionals, e.g. Occupational Health, Vocational Rehabilitation Specialists and other medical experts. We also have a special arrangement in place for doctors who are in financial need whereby they can apply to have their coaching funded. More information can be found here.
