Free information – Help to support employees with cancer

The charity Macmillan Cancer Support has launched a new resource for employers to help them support both people with cancer, and their carers, in the workplace.

‘The Essential Work and Cancer Toolkit’, which includes an employer’s guide produced in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), aims to give employers a better understanding of the physical, emotional and financial impact of a cancer diagnosis, practical guidance on how to manage employees with cancer, and information on how people with cancer are protected by the Equality Act.

Ciarán Devane, chief executive at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “With the number of people with cancer set to double from two to four million in the next 20 years, it is vital that employers are equipped to deal with people who are working through, or after, cancer.
