More Support for you
Other than Wigwam, Yes to Life have a range of services and information that maybe useful. Some of these are noted below along with a few other useful links. Of course key support in any healing path will be your own medical team.
Support comes in many shapes and sizes, but there is no question that it is a critical part of our healing journey. You can see our blog looking at support here.
Our helpline is supported by highly trained volunteers all who have personal experience of cancer or another chronic condition or have supported a close relative or friend. Our volunteers often provide a lifeline to those whose voices have not been heard, or who are otherwise isolated.
When you call our Helpline you will be asked to leave your name, a contact
number and a convenient time for a call-back. See more about our Helpline in a blog here. We aim to return all calls within 72 hours. Call the Helpline on 0870 163 2990 or email:
