Job description

Age UK East London celebrates and supports the voice, influence and contribution of older people across East London. We also work to improve the health and wellbeing of all our residents in later life by providing flexible practical and emotional support in homes, hospitals and in the community.

The Macmillan Take Home & Settle Service (TH&S) is a 12 month pilot.  The service will be delivered by Age UK East London with funding from Macmillan Cancer Support. The service will be overseen by a dedicated Project Officer along with two qualified support workers.  They will provide both practical and emotional support during a time when people with cancer may feel unwell, vulnerable, anxious, lonely or struggle to self-care.  The service will support adults 18+ resident of Tower hamlets who are having surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc.

Partnership with The Macmillan Local Authority Partnership Programme (MLAPP) in Tower Hamlets

The Macmillan Local Authority Partnership Programme (MLAPP) in Tower Hamlets aims to ensure that everyone living with and beyond cancer can easily access all the support they require to meet their holistic needs – including emotional wellbeing, support for carers, practical support at home, money, housing and employment advice, as well as tackle loneliness.

Our vision is that people affected by cancer should:

  • have access to holistic support
  • be able to participate in a personalised care planning process
  • be able to contribute to decision making about what happens
  • be confident that a ‘team’ around them (of professionals) will work together and have an integrated approach
  • expect to have a seamless experience of services between the hospital and the community
  • know that with their consent relevant information is being shared across agencies to enable the right support to be provided at the right time
  • feel that a partnership between the local authority, local health partners, community and voluntary sector agencies, community health services, and people affected by cancer, is possible
  • expect to agencies to engage them and use their feedback to design services

The MLAPP programme is based at Tower Hamlets Council, led by a Programme Lead and a Programme Coordinator. MLAPP is working in partnership with a number of organisations, including Age UK East London.

The programme’s engagement and co-design process identified an unmet need for practical person-centred support at home while people undergo cancer treatment.

To address this need, grant funding from Macmillan Cancer Support will establish a cancer focused pilot ‘Take Home and Settle’ service for a period of 12 months.
