Cancer help on hand for CPSU NSW members

Your union is always here to help.

The PSA CPSU NSW has a new service for those suffering from cancer, or caring for a family member with cancer.

Your union has teamed up with Osara Health to help the fight against the diagnosis no-one welcomes. Free to all members and their immediate family, the service can help in one of two ways.

Osara Health’s Cancer Coach program is for people who have been diagnosed with cancer. They receive one-on-one support, guidance, information and education from a trained professional. Participants will receive telephone calls from a Health Coach, receive email support and there is an app they can use. The program is designed to fit around the user’s schedule, with a Health Coach guiding them through every step.

A cancer diagnosis can hit loved ones hard, too. The Cancer Caregivers program is for people who are caring for those with the disease. Like the Cancer Coach program, Cancer Caregivers uses a mix of phone calls, emails and an app to share proven practices, helpful tips and resources people helping a loved one through these tough times.

In addition, there are plenty of online resources, including information and webinars, available to all members HERE at Osara Health’s dedicated PSA CPSU NSW web portal.

Osara Health’s free service for our members is just one of many services and benefits you get by being part of the largest Public Sector union in NSW.

We are not only there for you at the workplace: we can help you at the supermarket counter, obtaining banking services, during legal issues and covering your journey to and from work. Now, with Osara Health, we are also at your side during the trying experience that is a cancer diagnosis.

In times of crisis, it is reassuring to know the PSA CPSU NSW is there looking out for you.


Yours in union,
