Work and cancer

All you need to talk about work with people affected by cancer

There are over 700,000 people of working age living with cancer in the UK, who face many difficult decisions about work.  But when provided with the right support, work can have a number of important benefits for people affected by cancer.

That means we need professionals like you to direct people to the information and support they need so they can make informed decisions about work. And we're here to help.

Our Work support route guide will ensure you feel prepared to talk about work and signpost people to further sources of support. And we have a number of resources that you can order for people affected by cancer, some of which are listed below.

As well as resources listed here, we also have a wider range of resources for employees and employers.  And you can learn more about work and cancer by taking our e-learning course, Can we talk about work?
