  • Caring and supporting somebody affected by cancer

The service offers the opportunity to talk in confidence about what you are going through in a supportive, private and relaxing environment.

How do I access the service?

Anyone can access the service for information and support with any aspect of cancer. You can use our centre to talk to our staff and volunteers about any concerns you may have or access our varied information booklets to take away with you.

No appointment is necessary but if you are making a special journey to the centre, we recommend that you contact us beforehand to ensure that we have adequate staff available.

The centre is open Monday - Friday 9.30am until 4.30pm (excluding bank holidays).
