CLAN Cancer Support has introduced new weekly drop-in service providing information and support in Fraserburgh.
The charity will run the sessions each Monday, from 15th January in the Fraserburgh Library on the town’s King Edward Street between 10am – 1pm.
The drop-in sessions are open to anyone affected by cancer and will provide free support, information and signposting to the wide range of support services available.
Angie Howarth, CLAN Cancer Support Area Coordinator, said: “At CLAN we are committed to ensuring that anyone affected by cancer can access the support and information they need as close to the heart of their local community as possible.
“At CLAN we understand that the needs of our clients change and develop over time. We have successfully built partnerships with other libraries throughout Aberdeenshire and Moray and felt this approach would allow us to bring our vital services to another area of the community in Fraserburgh.
“Through the service, people will be able to visit the library, without need for an appointment, and speak with a member of the CLAN team who are all fully trained to provide support, direct people to the information they need and signpost individuals to the wide range of support that is available locally.
“We are also keen to hear from anyone who may be interested in volunteering with CLAN Fraserburgh, supporting this service expansion. Whether you can give time every week or once a month, whether you have existing experience in a support role or not, I would be delighted to speak to anyone who may be interested in finding out more about becoming part of the CLAN team.”
CLAN will be holding a volunteer recruitment event on Monday, 15th January 2018, between 10am – 1pm in the Fraserburgh Library. For further information please contact Angie Howarth on 07720 737500.
