Our charity has undergone massive change in the past few months.
We took on a new Chief Executive, Maggie Bailey in August 2019, who has driven through a move to new premises and a new logo in February 2020. We have committed to updating all staff in training for Cancer Care and Support, using technology and communication systems such as Cloud Phones and G Suite.
We had planned to roll out new income generation schemes with funders and the private sector to increase our range of services to support as many people with Cancer in the North East as possible.
All of this has been temporarily affected by Coronavirus. Our staff are all on furlough until the end of June 2020.
However – we can plan, train, and communicate before then to ensure our services are developed and adapted for our safe return to service delivery through the recovery phase of this pandemic.
We look forward to working with you all again post July 2020, with new ways of working, and innovative service developments. Our contract with Unicare for collecting charity bags for donations comes to an end on May 25 2020, so we will be looking for new creative ways of fundraising too.
Until then – please take care of yourselves and your loved ones during these extraordinary times.
