Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Training for Volunteers

  • Volunteers
Format
E-Learning

At Macmillan we exist to support people living with cancer and we currently help thousands of people with the emotional, practical and financial impact of cancer on their lives, but many more still need our support. For us to reach everyone that is diagnosed with cancer and show them how we can help them, it's essential that they feel seen, heard and understood - as individuals - by Macmillan. Regardless of who they are or their background. And for us to have the most impact in our work across the organisation, it's essential that everyone sees a part of themselves in Macmillan and that they can relate to us - from our colleagues, our Professionals, our volunteers, to our supporters and the people we support. We're committed to making Macmillan more equitable, diverse and inclusive - and now is the time for action.
