Places available on HOPE

Written on the

There are places available on the new HOPE course, a self-help course for people living with and beyond cancer.

The e-learning version of the face-to-face HOPE course: Helping to Overcome Problems Effectively is scheduled to start on Monday 7 July soon and places are available

eHOPE is a pilot resource developed and evaluated in collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support and Coventry University. HOPE provides information and activities designed to help you improve your personal wellbeing.

This new resource is designed to help you get more out of life.

Here is what people have said about their experience of taking part in HOPE:

"To chat and laugh, and exchange worries and hopes, has been helpful. I certainly have a more positive outlook. Thank you for inviting me to take part."
(Cancer survivor)

"I really enjoyed the video clips and the easy format of the different sections. An understanding of what I have gone through is very similar to many others (even with different diagnosis) and the tools to deal better with stressful situations."
(Cancer Survivor)

"I attended just as I restarted work. The skills I learnt were things I already knew but the support and encouragement from the course leaders and other attendees were very important. I am very grateful to have been able to attend and hope it will be available to others. I would love to get back in touch with other participants, I still feel a bond."
(Cancer survivor)

"You feel you have helped somebody through what can be really difficult and dark times, and seeing them almost kind of flourish over the weeks. And I think for some people it's just the start, and that's kind of the kick start perhaps that they needed, and they've got further work to do, but yeah just a privilege really to be part of it."
(Cancer Nurse Specialist, facilitator)
