Full training is provided.

Project lead Lisa Johnstone said: “We are looking for volunteers to offer one-to-one support in bereavement and befriending across Northumberland.”

The Macmillan Support Service is provided by Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support. For more details about the service or opportunities available, call 01670 855533.
