About us

What is Joining the Dots?

Macmillan Joining the Dots County Durham is a free, personal service for people aged 18 and over who have been diagnosed with cancer. We’re also there for friends, carers and relatives of any age too.

We can speak with you about your needs at a time and place that’s best for you. Our friendly team can support you with the following issues that may be affected during your diagnosis or that of someone you care for.

Even if you think you don’t need help and support right now, we can listen to you and make sure that you have the right information and support when you need it.

  • Family/relationship
  • Physical
  • Lifestyle/information
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual/religious
  • Practical/money

Macmillan Joining the Dots County Durham is a partnership between Durham County Council and Macmillan Cancer Support. The service is delivered by Wellbeing for Life.
