I-KNOW-HOW Project

We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in our application for ERDF Interreg funding for the I-Know-How project. This is a 3-year collaborative project with partners from Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the UK, to develop models to support people affected by cancer to help them to remain in / return to an active life and work. Our local partner, Rother Voluntary Action (RVA), will be developing coaching models and services to help local employers and other organisations support employees affected by cancer, while we will be responsible for developing coaching models for individuals of working age who may be living with cancer, or undergoing or recovering from treatment.

Employment and financial issues, along with the search for meaning and purpose, have always been areas of concern for a large number of the people we support. Building specialist knowledge and resources in this area, and partnering with RVA on the employer side, will give us the opportunity to offer meaningful, practical and psychological support to these people in the future, and to contribute to positive change on a local, regional, national and European level.

Established by the European Union, the European Regional Development Fund helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regenerations. For more information visit or

The Sara Lee Trust provides an invaluable service to our breast patients. ItÂ’s amazing that I am able to refer patients for a variety of complementary therapies. We know what a difference this can make when struggling to cope with the side effects of treatment and beyond. The counselling service is also a lifeline for some patients and the feedback we receive is always positive. We would genuinely struggle to access counselling with the volume of patients who are in need through the NHS in a timely manner.
