The coronavirus pandemic has challenged Macmillan like never before, but it also saw us go further and faster towards improving care for people living with cancer, at a time when our support has never been so crucial. Coronavirus created a ticking timebomb of undiagnosed and untreated cancer in the UK and as a result, cancer survival rates could go backwards for the first time in decades. People are being diagnosed every day, and with increasing demand and pressure on the health care system, our purpose has never been so clear, so urgent and so important.

Prospectus are delighted to be supporting Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice in their search for a new Philanthropy Manager working three or four days a week.
Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice are an amazing local charity, caring for over 2,500 people living in the Boroughs of Royal Greenwich and Bexley every year. They achieve this by providing free high-quality, compassionate care and support to people with all types of terminal illnesses, their families and their carers.
