Details of Position We are looking for individuals who want to ‘go the extra mile’ and believe and support the aims of Hope for Tomorrow. As a Community Engagement Representative you will be representing us at local shopping centres, garden centres etc and explaining the work of Hope for Tomorrow. .
Description of your Organisation One in two people will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. We have made it our mission to make a difference to the way that their treatment is delivered; giving the gift of time to patients so they can spend it wisely, with those that they love. Our Mobile Cancer Care Units help patients to fit their treatment in to their lives, not the other way round.

We bring our fleet of Mobile Cancer Care Units (MCCUs) into the heart of communities, and by working closely with NHS Trusts throughout the country, we work together to help as many people as possible.

What we do
Once on board on one of our Mobile Cancer Units, people receive the same exceptional care, just as they would in hospital. The big difference that our patients comment on is that there are a lot more smiles and it’s a more relaxing, homely environment. In fact, because of the less clinical, stress-free environment on board the MCCU, the specialist nurses on board say that many patients can tolerate their treatments better.

Our units are easily accessible, they are stationed in convenient, large spaces like those in a supermarket or local doctors’ car park. Some patients tell us that they are worried it may be cramped inside and ask if the treatment is different, but as soon as they get there they see there’s nothing for them to worry about.

The MCCUs are deliberately designed to accommodate four comfortable treatment chairs with ease, and the nurses on board administer the same medications that a cancer patient would receive in hospital. Our MCCUs combine the friendliness and comfort that the patients want, with the standard of treatment that they require.
