With all that has happened this year, the Counterpart 2019 – 2020 Year in Review has a strong focus on connection. Although we have a changed world due to the pandemic, we have successfully adapted many of our services so that we can still connect, support and inform women with breast or a gynaecological cancer. To maintain an uninterrupted service, our volunteers are providing valuable peer support to women over the phone, our events are now being provided on line and staff are continuing to work from home.
We thank those who have shared their stories of Counterpart: women who use our service, our volunteers and health professionals. As you read their stories, you will see how important the sense of connection has been this year.
