Being There is a small charity providing emotional support and home-based practical help to people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, along with those closest to them, such as family, friends and carers. We have support services with volunteering opportunities in Manchester, Trafford, Salford and Tameside.
We can offer someone to talk to confidentially about having cancer or another life limiting illness, along with home visits, social events and practical assistance, for example help with shopping, as well as support at hospital appointments.
Our services are delivered by specially trained volunteers who are managed by a team of professional staff.
