Macmillan Cancer Support (Wai Yin Society)

Wai Yin understands the barriers that Chinese individuals and families face when accessing healthcare and support in the UK. To respond to the complex needs of Chinese people affected by cancer, we have developed partnerships with a network of cancer organisations and professionals. We have a team of specially trained volunteers who provide practical, emotional and financial support to Chinese people who are suffering with cancer. The service is confidential and the focus in on the individual.

We speak your language

Our trained volunteers speak Cantonese, Mandarin, Hakka and English. Individuals and families from Manchester and the surrounding areas can access our cancer support services.
