December’s Later Life Newsletter from DWP has the following news item which many people affected by cancer may find helpful, particularly at a time of emotional distress, and many advocacy services may wish to use as a resource: 

“Find Me Help”: Dying Matters and Macmillan Cancer Care have teamed up to produce a new free online resource, Find Me Help –  a directory or service finder aimed at people in the last years of life, their family, carers and friends which lists over 3,200 charitable services across the UK, including palliative care, meals, transport, social groups, etc.
