Parents of Children with Cancer Support Programme
CMK understand the direct correlation between parent and child wellbeing in paediatric cancer and are currently working with our local hospital trusts to develop a wellbeing programme to support parents/carers of children with a cancer diagnosis in East Kent. Whilst parents and families affected by childhood cancer may benefit from nationally-based charities offering support when children are in active treatment, there is a gap in locally-based provision when parents and families return home from specialist hospitals located outside of Kent. This programme will seek to address this gap in providing a package of parent/carer wellbeing support in partnership with otherlocally-based community partners.
This programme will include the following:
Engagement with and incorporation of parent/carer voice to inform programme development.
Wellbeing bags to be given to parents at the time of their child’s diagnosis.
Parent/carer peer support group/s.
A programme of wellbeing events to enhance wellbeing and build resilience (e.g. free holistic, complimentary therapies).
