Press release 18th July 2018

As the summer continues to hot up, MelanomaMe. a leading melanoma counselling and awareness service is offering a drop-in session to support national homelessness charity Crisis, to help homeless people become more aware of protecting their skin from harmful UV rays.

Working with Melanoma UK, a UK charity and patient advocacy group, Kerry, a co-founder of MelanomaMe explains: “In the past 15 months we have been raising the profile of skin cancers and melanoma within schools, workplaces and the beauty industry. We wanted to expand our services to helping people who are hard to reach, some being men, carers and homeless people who are unfortunately overexposed to UV. We discussed our thoughts with Gillian Nuttall from Melanoma UK who believed in the project and has kindly supported us by making a donation, so that we can provide sunscreen and education for the Homeless”
Gillian Nuttall from Melanoma UK said “We are delighted to support the work of MelanomaMe. Melanoma kills 2,500 people every year so we are happy to assist anything that raises awareness and protects our vulnerable people.”

Andrew Burnip, Director of Crisis Skylight Newcastle, said:
“”Rough sleeping is incredibly dangerous at any time of year, but as temperatures continue to soar, exposure to harmful UV rays, as well as dehydration and heat exhaustion pose particular risks for those forced to sleep on the streets. We’re very grateful to MelanomaMe for advising our clients on the dangers of exposure to the sun, and will continue to provide sun cream, hats and water to those in need.
“Ultimately though, no one should be facing these dangers when we know that homelessness can be ended, so we’re also asking people to join our campaign to end homelessness for good; email their local MPs asking them pledge their support to end homelessness; and help us ensure that in future, no one has to face these conditions again.”

Thank you Melanoma UK and Rol Hawkins for your support in helping MelanomaMe. make this happen and working with Crisis on the 24th August 2018.

New Premises

From the 30th September we will be moving into our new premises in Unit 3 Newtown Ind Est. Birtley, Tyne & Wear DH3 2QW.
Although we will be sad to leave the lovely premises we are currently occupying, we feel the move is for the benefit of both MelanomaMe. CIC and Melanoma-Me Foundation in terms of sustainability. The premises occupies one extra counselling room and a bigger training room. All rooms will now be on ground floor level, making it more accessible for clients and those attending awareness training and groups.

We are planning on a smooth transition, with the least disruption to clients and staff as possible and no disruption to our counselling service.

All our services will remain accessible to all those affected by melanoma and skin cancer throughout the Northeast area.
