Support service now open in Fauldhouse

Macmillan @ Fauldhouse Partnership Centre Information and Support Service for people living with cancer and their families in West Lothian is now open in Fauldhouse.

The new service will be available from 10am - 12noon every Tuesday. 

A partnership between West Lothian Council and Macmillan Cancer Support, the service is available for anyone affected by cancer, including the person with a cancer diagnosis, family, friends and carers. The service can be accessed at any point in the cancer journey, no appointment is necessary visitors can drop in to use the service. 

Trained volunteers provide emotional and practical support, access to information materials on various types of cancer and its treatment, or simply provide a listening ear for people. People can also be signposted to other support services such as benefits advice and counselling. 

The information and support service is provided by volunteers who offer a listening ear and time to talk about the non-clinical aspects of living with cancer.  The volunteers are supported by West Lothian Council staff.

Volunteers are currently needed to join the team. Volunteers can come from any background and full training and support will be provided.

Dementia Café

The Sunlight Café Fauldhouse is a meeting place where people who have any form of dementia, and their carers, can come to meet others in a similar situation for support and social contact, a cup of tea or coffee and cakes.

Carers on their own are also welcome, as are people with dementia who are able to make their own way there.

Come along for the whole session, or you are welcome to just drop in for as long as you like.

The café runs on the second Thursday of every month from 1.30pm - 3pm at Fauldhouse Partnership Centre.
