Working with Cancer

Working With Cancer is a social enterprise which supports people affected by cancer to successfully return to work, remain in work or find work. We provide coaching, training and consultancy advice to employees, working carers and employers to help them understand how to manage work and cancer. Our Associates are all cancer survivors, or have been working carers, and are trained professionals with wide-ranging business experience and expertise.

Macmillan Cancer Support

Macmillan are here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support. So whatever cancer throws your way, we’re right there with you.

Maggie's Centres

Maggie’s is a charity that offers free emotional and practical support to people living with cancer and their family and friends. During the Covid-19 emergency its centres across the UK are unable to welcome people as usual, but they are supporting people by phone, email or through the online community during this incredibly difficult time. Since Maggie’s opened their first centre in 1996, the charity has developed a programme of support that is proven to help people with cancer and their loved ones take back control. 


Astriid helps bridge the gap between the Invisible Talent Pool (people who have long-term conditions but who wish to use their skills and experience in work), and the UK skills crisis. The platform matches talented candidates with prospective employers, providing accessible work opportunities for those who are seeking them. In this way, we hope to make the Invisible Talent Pool, Visible.
