July was Ethnic Minority Cancer Awareness Month and with your help we reached out to people affected by cancer in minority ethnic communities.
Our Rich Picture report outlined that cancer awareness and uptake of some services is lower among ethnic minorities.
Language can often be a barrier to this. On be.Macmillan there is a wide range of materials in different languages, including our cancer factsheets and early diagnosis flyers. These have been translated into 14 languages so far, including Bengali, traditional Chinese, Gujariti, Polish, and Urdu.
In addition, Macmillan Support Line provides an interpretation service for over 200 languages. Simply tell the people you support to state, in English, the language they wish to use when they call.
