YOUR time | YOUR support | YOUR donationBeing There is a local 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 can offer someone to talk to confidentially about cancer, along with home visits, social events and practical assistance, for example help with shopping, as well as support at hospital appointments.

Being There works in the Greater Manchester area. Our services are delivered by specially trained volunteers who are managed by a team of professional staff.
