We are delighted to announce our new collaboration with Maggie’s Cardiff. This partnership will fund a two-year grant to place a Tenovus Cancer Care psychologist at Maggie’s Cardiff which will ensure they can reach more people across Wales who could benefit from psychological support. With many people with cancer self-isolating and facing changes or delays to treatment across Wales, this type of support is needed now more than ever.
Judi Rhys MBE, Chief Executive of Tenovus Cancer Care said “We are proud to be funding the Tenovus Cancer Care Psychologist at Maggie’s Cardiff. We know what a difference services like this can make in helping those affected by cancer, especially during these difficult times. This collaboration will ensure more people living with cancer benefit from this professional support. Through this partnership with Maggie’s, we are able to use our collective resources to best meet the needs of our beneficiaries.”
Since it opened in April 2019 Maggie’s Cardiff has supported thousands of visits from people with cancer and their family and friends in need of support.
Maggie’s CEO Dame Laura Lee said “We are excited to collaborate with Tenovus Cancer Care to increase our capacity to reach more people living with cancer in south east Wales. We know people with cancer need Maggie’s now more than ever. Cancer is possibly the hardest experience of a person’s life, yet coronavirus and restrictions have made living with cancer even more difficult. The Tenovus Cancer Care Psychologist at Maggie’s Cardiff will ensure that everyone that needs us can have immediate access to a highly trained clinical psychologist giving people with cancer the support they really need right now.”
The Tenovus Cancer Care Psychologist at Maggie’s Cardiff role is currently being recruited. Once in post, the new psychologist will support people face to face in the centre or by phone or online.
