About Macmillan Cancer Connections

Macmillan Cancer Connections is a new community engagement project in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan is the UK’s leading source of cancer support and is there to help people find their best way through cancer and live life as fully as they can.

Macmillan Cancer Connections aims to understand what impact being rurally isolated has on experiences of cancer and outcomes for people living with cancer in Wiltshire. The project is led by experienced Community Organiser Alex Neale in her role as Macmillan Community Development Coordinator.

Alex’s role involves reaching out to people affected by cancer in Wiltshire and listening to what they have to say about their experience.

As part of the Macmillan Cancer Connections project, Alex also works with partner organisations and local communities to develop, deliver and coordinate a broad range of community-based initiatives, which addresses the health and wellbeing needs of people affected by cancer across the county.
