Cancer support resources

Double handed shake

Cancer is a life-changing illness and there are over 100,000 new cases diagnosed each year within the working-age population of the UK. Many of these people will continue to work during their treatment and return to work after recovery, however, this may not be possible due to the effects on physical and mental health.

Each individual case comes with different needs and no one action or situation can work for everyone. Our guidance aims to support employers and employees through the continuation of work during treatment, sickness absence and the return to work processes.
