Make 2nds Count Trial Patient Advocate Service
Finding the right information about available clinical trials and understanding the associated complex information is a challenge for all secondary breast cancer patients. And so we have funded a trial of a new service in the NHS to raise awareness of clinical research and trials amongst patients with secondary breast cancer.

The Make 2nd Count Secondary Breast Cancer Patient Trials Advocate (PTA) is a senior research nurse with experience in secondary breast cancer and clinical trials.

The role is initially being piloted in the South East of Scotland (Lothian, Borders, Livingston, Fife and Dumfries & Galloway), to help secondary breast cancer patients potentially find a clinical trial and to support them through the clinical trial process. Assuming the pilot is successful, we then hope to expand the service beyond the South East of Scotland before then end of 2021.

Richmond's Hope

Richmond’s Hope provides support for children and young people aged 4-18 years who have been bereaved. The charity provides a safe space for children to work through their grief both verbally and non verbally, to preserve memories of the person who died, to explore their feelings, to be given coping strategies and to understand the impact the bereavement has had on their lives.
As each child’s grief is different, we provide individual programmes of care for each child. Our dedicated team of bereavement workers support children on a one to one basis.
We are also passionate about educating individuals and groups about the language surrounding grief and offer training and interest visits. The training we offer to external organisations aims to raise awareness of young people’s grief and how it affects their lives.

Each site has a range of beach wheelchairs and equipment

All of the wheelchairs have been specially designed to enable individuals with disabilities to get back on the beach. Unlike a standard manual wheelchair, they have large, rubber wheels which move easily over the sand. We hire out beach wheelchairs free of charge from each of our seaside locations using local volunteers.
