Living with Cancer and Universal credit


We have received the following from a research company who are working on a project with Macmillan cancer support looking into the experiences people living with cancer have in trying to claim benefits.

At the moment we are desperately trying to reach out to people living with cancer who claim Universal Credit, in the hope of finding some who will be willing to share their stories with us to contribute to this valuable project. In all honesty, we are really struggling to find people to participate and are reaching out to organisations such as yourself in the hope that you might be able to help us in some way. Any help at all would be hugely appreciated, whether this is by:

  • Raising awareness of the project in support/ community groups or at events
  • Sharing information of the project with linked organisations who may have contact with people living with cancer
  • Displaying our poster (please see attached) either online, in a newsletter or in communal areas
  • Speaking to people personally who you might know who might be interested in taking part

Charity Concert series 2018 – 19 by Jayne Thomas

In 2018 , Jayne Thomas approached us with an offer to put on concerts for the benefit of Face up .  This lady kindly worked tirelessly and arranged a series of coffee concerts as well as spring and Jazz concerts at St Edwards Church in Penylan.  These were excellent and were enjoyed by all.

A concert was arranged at St Andrews Church in Roath where the Cwmbach Male voice choir as well as a visiting Croatian Choir performed.  This was an outstanding evening and thoroughly enjoyed by a full house.

In total , these concerts raised £4,375.  The hard work by this lovely lady really paid off and face up is eternally grateful.
