The Beth Johnson Foundation is a national charity dedicated to making the UK age-friendly. Working with a network of volunteers, researchers, intergenerational practitioners, and age-specialist partner organisations, we speak up for the rights of older people, and push for change, at a strategic and practical level, to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy a great later life.
The Cancer Support Programme (CaSP) Social, emotional and practical support to improve the health and well-being of adults affected by cancer.
Building on the success of our previous projects, Staffordshire Cancer Advocacy Support Project and North Staffs Cancer Lifestye, we have developed a new NHS funded, community based project - CaSP.
A service for cancer patients newly diagnosed or undergoing treatment (aged 18+) living in Staffordshire and attending Royal Stoke, County or Cannock Hospitals. The CaSP provides health and social care staff the opportunity to refer cancer patients for personalised one-to-one support in their community to overcome practical issues and improve their well-being through social and emotional support.
The project has supported many people with a wide range of issues or problems - including access to support services, accompanying people to appointments with consultants and GP’s, referrals for benefits advice, and also provising a much needed listening ear.
Our aim is to help improve your quality of life by enabling you to resolve any difficulties you may be facing, whether cancer related or not. No matter what the issue is, we will support you in finding a solution. We can provide support around a wide variety of issues including treatment and care, employment issues, social and financial difficulties, and can provide a listening ear.
