Evaluating, listening and supporting.

A key aim of ours is to reach more patients and families in Derby directly affected by cancer. We want to reach them and help them before their condition gets too tricky. We want to reach them before it's too late.

We can only do this by continually spreading the word about who we are and what we do.  We keep the paperwork down to an absolute minimum, and we give a grant decision as soon as we possibly can. We work closely with Macmillan Cancer Support, Treetops Hospice and the Royal Derby Hospital teams to ensure our name reaches far and wide. We're very grateful to these and more for pushing us out there, for suggesting Annabel's Angels to those who might need us. 


Being a very young charity, the need to capture the thoughts and opinions about our work from those we help is so important. This feedback helps us to see where we go wrong, and where we do right. And, of course, how we can improve. This feedback also helps others understand more about us. It gives the public an idea as to what items/services they can request from us. It paints a picture of family life and helps us all to fully understand the impact of our support. 

We're always so very grateful for the feedback we receive from those we support. With this in mind we wanted to take the opportunity of sharing some words from a family we supported in November 2014.

How can we improve our Grants Programme?

I don’t think you can improve. It is a fantastic charity.

Would you recommend Annabel’s Angels to others? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, nice simple process to help people that need it!


Please help us to reach more people. Please talk about us, share our social media posts, suggest us to those who might benefit. We can't ever take the cancer away unfortunately, but we can take away the burden of living with cancer, if only for a little while. 

To apply for a grant please see the Grants Programme section on the website.
