Sandwell Cancer, Older People and Advocacy Project (SCOPA)

Sandwell Cancer, Older People and Advocacy project was initially formed as a partnership between Sandwell Advocacy and the Older People’s Advocacy Alliance. 

Being diagnosed with cancer is one of the toughest things most of us will every face. Not just for the person diagnosed but for everyone caring for and supporting the. You don’t have to face it alone.   We are here for older people affected by cancer, either as a patient or a family member, friend or carer. We can provide support with resolving or speaking out about a wide variety of issues or problems, allowing you to focus on your health and well-being, particularly if you are feeling unwell and undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment.  

See the SCOPA website for more information.
