Over the next couple of weeks, we are sharing blogs about each of the sessions at Care Opinion Scotland’s conference that was held on the 28th of October 2020. Today’s blog is about the third session of the conference that was called “Macmillan Cancer Support and Care Opinion”. This session was hosted by Care Opinion’s Head of Scotland, Fraser Gilmore and the speaker was Macmillan’s Engagement and Volunteer Manager (Scotland), Janice Malone.

The quote in the title “We stand for betterness” comes from Macmillan’s founder, Douglas Macmillan. In Janice’s presentation she shared the History of MacMillan Cancer Support, explained the work the organisation does to amplify the voices of people with Cancer and how the work with Care Opinion in Scotland helped with this. You can watch the full video of the session below:
