Being There is a local charity providing emotional support and practical assistance to people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, along with those closest to them, such as family, friends and carers. We offer our support and volunteering opportunities in Greater Manchester – Salford, Trafford, Tameside and Manchester.
We are able to listen confidentially to concerns about having cancer, strokes, heart and respiratory disease and other serious illnesses. Our solutions to promote well-being include befriending, carer support, respite sitting, social groups as well as practical assistance, for example taking people shopping or transport to hospital appointments. We also offer a professional counselling service.
