Within each of us, behind fear's survival mentality is love's original divine spark. Soul Moves is the journey towards re-finding and then living that spark in daily life. Who is it for? You!
You may have been diagnosed with cancer yourself or be supporting someone who has. Being diagnosed with cancer or being told your cancer has returned can be a traumatic and life-changing event. People often describe feeling shocked, disorientated, angry, frustrated, scared, isolated, in need of support and often unsure what to do for the best.

Macmillan merged with Cancerbackup in 2008. Together we provide quality assured, up-to-date cancer information, written by specialists for patients, relatives and carers. All our booklets and resources are now free and available to all.
Situated in rural Herefordshire, we serve the local community and surrounding five counties. Since the first patient was admitted on 31st October 1984, more than 20,000 people and their families have benefitted from the care we offer.
We are an independent charity and all our services are given free. It costs over £10,000 per day to provide these services and we rely on around 90% of our funding from the community.
We supply and fully fund the best wigs available from all over the world, especially designed for children. We also provide personal fitting and styling to ensure the wig is as close as possible to the original hair.
For any parent, discovering your child has a serious illness like cancer or leukaemia is devastating. The trauma for both parent and child can be increased by worrying about the side effects of the treatment, particularly hair loss.
Herefordshire Mind has over 30 years experience of delivering high-quality, person-centred services and campaigns for better services, increased access and reduced stigma for people affected by mental distress.

From the moment of diagnosis our support is immediate, preventative and continuing. The Hope Team is a diverse group of highly trained, sensitive and supportive professionals offering a unique service to meet the needs of the individual young person.
We work and liaise with local and national agencies to provide a comprehensive support network. Our vision is to build a foundation of support for young people within their own communities.
We aim to do this by:
- Actively involving carers to tell us what services they wish to receive
- Sharing our knowledge and skills to inform others about best practice
- Promoting the participation of carers in their communities by recognising and overcoming the barriers that they face
- Participating in the development of policies that enhance equality and thereby challenging discrimination
- Efficiently delivering services that are of a high quality and work across professional and administrative boundaries
