With 1 in 3 people impacted by Cancer, directly or indirectly, it is time to support each other, here in the workplace. In January 2016, the EDF Energy Cancer Support Network was set-up, our shared hope clear.
EDF Energy’s Cancer Support Networks Shared Hope
To ensure anyone impacted by Cancer has support and access to tools/signposts to empower them with knowledge.
No longer did we want people to suffer and worry in silence. Since our first meeting, the Group has gone from strength to strength, with meetings held monthly in Barnwood, with guest speakers delivering presentations about “Mindfulness” and “Stress Management.” In addition to this, a local charity “The Barnwood Trust” has donated £250.00 to help develop our local library. The aim of the library is to contain the latest publications about Cancer and other related useful media. MacMillan has subsequently donated £500 to help with the expansion. At the moment, the Network is operating out of Barnwood; however, there are plans to develop in each of EDF Energy’s primary locations creating a wider, cross country, support network.
