Macmillan Online Hope Programme for people living with cancer



Macmillan Hope Programme for people living with cancer

Living with or after a cancer diagnosis?

Do you want to enhance your resilience through these difficult times, rediscover strengths and increase your ability to cope? 

Macmillan Cancer Support and Hope For the Community CIC have partnered to deliver this free online group self-management programme. The Hope Programme for people living with cancer was co-created with people living and affected by cancer and with researchers at Coventry University to make sure it is rooted in science.

Since launching the Hope Programme we have seen a great demand.

WE PLACES AVAILABLE FOR COURSES commencing from 13th June, 5th September and 31st October. 

What will it involve?

You will be asked to enrol on a 6 week online Hope Programme. It will take up to 2 hours to complete each weekly session, which you can complete at any time which is convenient to you. You can do the course on your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. 

Each week we will cover topics like: • smarter goal setting • priorities and values • living positively with fears for the future • character strengths • physical activity • eating well • managing stress • coping with fatigue • finding things to be thankful for

The course includes quizzes, worksheets, audio and video materials, interactive gratitude and goal setting and social networking via email and forums. Hope aims to teach you how to become more relaxed, improve your confidence in setting positive goals, learn stress and fatigue management skills and explore any worries you experience when dealing with cancer.

The course may be facilitated by trained facilitators and health professionals who themselves have an experience of living with cancer. You may be offered to join a course that you can complete at your own pace without facilitators.  

What do you need to do?

You will be asked to complete few questions on sign-up, this is just so we know this course is right for you. 

Before and after the course, our partners at Coventry University might also ask you to take part in a survey to tell us how you are feeling and what you thought about the course, so we can make it better for future participants. Taking part is optional.
