We have heard many of our clients saying that they are nervous about getting back into the community using public transport, visiting supermarkets, and picking up other necessary items or even to attend important GP or hospital appointments.

Due to this we have designed a lanyard with our WCT colours to assist in the transition back into our everyday living in the community. Wearing our WCT lanyard discreetly suggests to people around you that you may need additional space, support, or time.

 

The benefits

People around you including staff at shops, running transport services or the general public will be able to recognise the lanyard and as a result, be more considerate of the additional space you may welcome during the Covid-19 pandemic.

They may also feel they can ask what they can do to help if it looks as though this may be required.

You or a loved one can use your WCT lanyard to tell us about the additional help you may need.

The WCT lanyard will help to raise awareness about living with a cancer diagnosis and the impact it can have on day to day life.
