The Mulberry Centre - for anyone affected by cancer Heart

How we spend our money

There are 5 main ways in which we provide person centred support to people affected by cancer at The Mulberry Centre:

mulberry-heart-wp-icon  Information and drop-in support

mulberry-heart-wp-icon  Counselling

mulberry-heart-wp-icon  Therapies

mulberry-heart-wp-icon  Welfare and benefit support

mulberry-heart-wp-icon  Workshops

In addition to the support that we offer at The Mulberry Centre itself, we also do outreach work in the community.  As well as informing people about the support offered by The Mulberry Centre, our outreach work is an opportunity to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of different types of cancer and ways in which people can adopt preventive measures (e.g. diet, exercise, giving up smoking, attending routine screening) to lessen their chances of developing cancer.

In order for us to be able to deliver this wide range of support and information, we need to raise the funds and have a small fundraising team to do this.

Finally, underpinning everything we do are the activities that relate to good governance.
