Safeena – Muslim Cancer Support Network (SMCSN) offers emotional and practical support to Muslims who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as partners, family and friends of people with a diagnosis. The service will be provided by Muslims who have lived experience of either the diagnosis or being a partner, family, friend of someone with a diagnosis. The service is designed to offer short-term support. This confidential service will provide the opportunity for people to talk openly and to ask any questions they like. Most of the support will be offered by telephone, but some volunteers will additionally provide support by email.
You will be contacted when you are identified as being a suitable match to provide support. Calls are made from your own home, at a mutually convenient time for both you and the service user.
This is your opportunity to apply to volunteer to become a befriender and help support fellow Muslims affected by Cancer.
