‘She was there when I needed her’

Today we hear from Kathleen Gillett of Dorset Macmillan Advocacy:

We ask the people that we support for feedback on the service they have received. As part of this we ask them to chose three words to describe their advocate.  One person was lost for words and said only ‘She was there when I needed her‘ which sums it up really.  A word cloud of the other comments gives a flavour of what our volunteer and paid advocates bring to their partnerships.  It’s a good visual reminder of the value of peer volunteer advocates.  And Volunteers’ Week this week is a good time to remember the time and effort that they put into helping others affected by cancer and to say a big ‘Thank you!’
