If you need to talk, we're here to listen. With a weekly call from one of our trained Telephone Buddies, you don't have to face cancer alone.

Going through cancer can be an isolating experience at any time, and especially when social distancing. Our free Telephone Buddy Service is here for you. We'll match you with someone who understands what you're going through, and they'll give you a weekly call.

Your volunteer buddy will be a listening ear, ready to talk about how you're feeling and your support needs during this difficult time. They can also let you know about our services, and all the ways Macmillan can help, to ensure you don't face cancer alone.
