We are excited to report that the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer (APPGC) has invited the Whatever it Takes – Cancer Care for Everyone team to speak at their upcoming meeting entitled: ‘Making cancer care inclusive for all’.
The Whatever it Takes Project was a collaboration between BU PIER Partnership, Wessex Cancer Alliance and Help & Care. PIER were funded by CRN Wessex to provide mentoring and support to Rosie and Katie, two Disabled and neuro-divergent community researchers, using the PIER community research model, to engage with a wide range of Disabled people across Wessex, to better understand the barriers and enablers for accessing Cancer Care. Dr Kate Jupp (PIER officer) and Stevie Corbin-Clarke (research assistant) with the support of Prof. Mel Hughes (Academic lead for PIER) worked alongside Katie and Rosie (community researchers with lived experience) and Amanda (specialist cancer nurse) throughout the project.
