New Cancer Advocacy Service for Older People in Knowsley

KAPISLocal Charity Knowsley Pensioners Advocacy and Information Service (KPAIS) are proud to launch a brand new Cancer, Older People and Advocacy (COPA) service to support residents over 50 living with cancer.

The COPA service will provide independent advocacy, one to one support and help and for anyone over 50 who is affected by cancer in Knowsley.

Cancer can bring bewildering changes to the lives of those diagnosed but can also have a major impact on family, carers and friends.

KPAIS manager Pat McCarthy said “We will be supporting older people affected by cancer to make sure that healthcare professionals, social services, benefits and other agencies understand and respect their wishes.

We’ll support residents who are over 50 in Knowsley affected by cancer to make informed choices and decisions about their treatment and care. We can help residents find out whatever they need to know from information on cancer through to what practical help is available locally”.

If you are over 50, live in Knowsley and need cancer advocacy support or would like to talk to someone about it then please contact COPA lead Valerie McGregor at KPAIS on 0151 449 3706 or email: val.mcgregor@kpais.co.uk
