In partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support

A Scotland-wide programme, in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, that aims to amplify the voices of people affected by cancer.

The ALLIANCE is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support over the next two years to make sure that the needs and views of people affected by cancer continue to inform and influence the redesign of cancer services in Scotland.

Our key objective is to support people affected by cancer to get involved and influence the national Transforming Cancer Care Programme – a national partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support and Scottish Government that aims to join up support for people affected by cancer to make sure people’s needs are assessed at the point of cancer diagnosis, and that people have the opportunity to access services tailored to their individual needs whilst living with and beyond their cancer diagnosis.

A key priority for us until March 2023 will be to engage with a wide range of people affected by cancer with diverse life stories and life experiences, with a specific focus on amplifying the voices of people affected by cancer who are seldom heard.

We anticipate that there will be several different ways people can become involved, communications about upcoming involvement opportunities will be available through the ALLIANCE website and in our weekly bulletin.
