A leading north-east charity is seeking the views of residents in Inverurie and North Aberdeenshire with a view to developing local services.

As part of a regular review of its services throughout the north-east, CLAN Cancer Support is seeking views on the provision of cancer service from people within the communities it works.

Lucy Whiteman, CLAN’s services manager, said: “At CLAN we continually assess and review our cancer wellbeing and support services to ensure we deliver the highest quality of service in the heart of communities.

“As part of this process we are looking to gather information from local communities about the current provision of cancer support services in both Inverurie and North Aberdeenshire which will allow us to assess how CLAN can best meet the changing needs of current and future clients.

“We would like to ask members of the community to take a few minutes to complete our survey, which is completely confidential.

“Responses will allow us to gauge localised needs for cancer support services, and what people need the most from CLAN.

“Support from the community is essential to us and key to ensuring that CLAN continues to provide vital cancer support services in the heart of local communities.”
