Our community outreach programs involve Solaris Cancer Care taking its services to regional and outer metropolitan areas, or specific groups of people, to ensure everyone has the opportunity to access these services.
The Outreach Support program fulfils an often unmet need by reaching out to people within the community who are unable (for reasons including being too unwell, incapacity, disadvantage or disability) to attend our in-house programs or services.
The outreach program includes regular phone or Skype contact, home/hospital care packs, visits and outreach counselling services. Counsellors are available for members during times of crisis or critical care, maintaining a strong sense of support and links with the culture, community, and resources of Solaris Cancer Care.
We are sensitive to the diverse needs of CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) populations and endeavour to respectfully serve all people affected by cancer, and link people to services where our capacity does not currently extend. If you are a service provider who would like to discuss client needs and opportunities for cross referral we welcome your contact.
