Advancements in technology mean that more people are surviving cancer however, due to funding cutbacks, there is a limited amount of psychological services available for cancer patients and their families. Our charity grants you and your family access to crucial facilities that have been lost due to NHS funding cutbacks.
Helping ex-offenders to find employment is a fundamental aspect of our charity, and our objective is to help offenders to ‘break the cycle’. We also offer an array of clubs and programmes for young people and families in the local community, including musical theatre, yoga, and cookery.
Welcome to Jo's Hope, a breast cancer charity that primarily offers support for cancer patients and their families. Due to NHS cutbacks, post-surgery bras are often not provided for cancer patients, and there is a limited supply of counselling services for you and your family. Therefore, our charity focuses on attaining these vital services so you can return to the person you were before your diagnosis. Also, another aspect of our charity is to help ex-offenders gain employment by building on the skills learnt within prison, such as food preparation and catering. Based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes, we have helped people in our community and throughout the UK.
About Our Founder
Our charity was founded by Joanna Tomkin, who strives to help and give hope to people who currently suffer, or who’ve previously fought the disease. Upon being diagnosed with breast cancer herself, our owner decided to take the daunting but incredibly exciting decision to launch her own charity.
Over the last 5 years, our charity has gone from strength to strength. At the Milton Keynes Inspiration Awards 2018-19, we won the awards for Best Charity and Most Inspirational Individual. We primarily raise funds to buy post-surgery bras for you, and also provide support for your family and friends.
