Kia ora neighbours!

As we're back at Alert Level 2 until this Friday, the Cancer Society will be levelling up our contact-tracing and hygiene procedures again to keep everyone safe. You’re still welcome to come and see us, we’ll just be asking you a few questions at the door.

It’s important to remember that people with cancer or at high risk are encouraged to stay at home where possible, and take additional precautions when leaving home. Please continue to attend cancer treatments and discuss any concerns with your treatment team.

Visit our website for more information or you can always give us a call on 0800 CANCER (226 237) for any extra support 💛

In this role being compassionate and organised is key, but you will also have that extra ‘sixth sense’ and will know how to offer the right help at the right time; whether that’s a reassuring welcome, a well-timed cup of tea and chat, or helping clients connect with the right medical professional.

If this sounds like you, please get in touch! 💛
