The Macmillan Mobile Information and Support Bus is coming to 3 venues in Buckinghamshire in the w/c 29 May.
Their Mobile Information and Support Services (MISS) tour the UK throughout the year, offering free, confidential information and support to people affect by cancer in their communities.
Their buses are staffed by Macmillan cancer information and support specialists who can offer a wide range of information and support tailored to a person’s individual needs.
The main advantage of the service is that they are an easily accessible community resource, often reaching people who wouldn’t usually seek information and support via conventional channels. The anonymous, drop-in style of the service attracts people who tend not to access traditional sources of information.
Being able to talk about concerns in a safe and confidential environment can reduce stress and anxiety for people affected by cancer. They may also feel more in control and more able to self manage their condition as a result of the advice they receive.
