Elf@Home trains local volunteers to support patients and their families in their own homes, ideally in their local community.
Elf@Home volunteers will be alongside you when the road ahead is tough, helping with both the practical and the emotional elements of living with blood cancer. They can also help with ‘hidden’ problems – those small but important things like arranging dental appointments and assisted refuse collections, or helping with the weekly shop.
Our volunteers offer advice, friendship and practical help, improving your wellbeing and connecting you with a whole range of services on what can be a very traumatic journey.
Having a friend to talk, cry and laugh with – or to simply stand alongside – can make all the difference.
