Following its successful introduction CLAN Cancer Support will be continuing its outreach support within the Alford Community Library, on the village's Greystone Road.
The information and support service was first launched in September 2018 and has been successful, supporting a number of local clients and families since.
CLAN team members and support volunteers will be at the library on the first Tuesday of each month between 10am and 2pm, within the library's conference room.
Tracy Sellar, Area Services Manager for CLAN Cancer Support, said: “We are delighted to be working with the team at Alford Library to extend the support we currently provide within the Aberdeenshire area.
“Our free of charge services are available to anyone who is affected by a cancer diagnosis, whether personally or through a family member, friend, colleague or as a carer.
“One of the biggest challenges that a cancer diagnosis can bring is the availability and access to the support and information that can make such a difference to some during what can be a worrying and stressful time.
“CLAN recognises the strain that this can add to individuals and is addressing this through strengthening its network of outreach facilities based right in the heart of local communities.
“With the large majority of Aberdeenshire being remote in nature with limited public transport links, we understand the difficulties people can face when looking for, or accessing, support services.”
