HOW TO CREATE A SURVIVORS GROUP

First edition of the Handbook “Establishing a survivors group and keep it going” is available online.

Download PDFHandbook – Establishing a survivors group and keep it going

The main objective of this handbook is to give support to survivors and all those interested in establishing a survivors group or keep an already existing group going. The target group can range from survivors, parents, doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, friends of affected persons/families to interested people. The handbook should give everyone who works in this field a wealth of ideas and inspiration.

The handbook offers a variety of ideas for the founding of survivors groups or for the leadership how to keep a group going. It can be seen as a guide from which one can draw one’s own conclusions and in consequence, use this information to set up an own model which fits best. It can be a good tool for a kick-off meeting if you want to start a group or help you to redefine the aims and structures of the group.

Survivors groups are of essential support for survivors themselves, because the aims of survivors groups, which range from providing social contact, sharing experiences and knowledge to giving back hope to those  who are living with cancer is very important.
