Compassion. Comfort. Connection.

We provide practical and emotional support to people with cancer, during and after the treatment period.

We support people with all kinds of cancer across the UK. Our services are designed and delivered by people who have experienced cancer themselves – to improve the experience of others.

We are looking to add one or two trustees to our Board. We are searching for individuals with a strong background in cancer or oncology related activities in the public, private or charitable sectors, in particular, experience of dealing with the psychological and wellbeing implications of diagnosis and treatment.

Cancer Coach

Have you finished cancer treatment? Are you struggling to adapt to your new normal? Do you feel unsupported when tackling the emotional challenges of post-treatment life?

Cancer Coach is our free support group programme for anyone who has completed their physical cancer treatment. Held over the phone and online video, groups are run by trained facilitators and take place once a week for 6 weeks. Talk to others who understand what it’s like – as they have experienced cancer too.

Cancer Coach groups are suitable for people who have previously had a stage 1-3 cancer diagnosis.

If you are a healthcare professional and would like to refer someone to Cancer Coach, please click on the Make a referral button. If you are self-referring please click on the Join a Cancer Coach Support Group button.

Workplace Cancer Support Training Courses

By 2030, there will be around one million people of working age living with cancer in the UK. 85% of people with cancer who were employed when diagnosed, say it was important for them to continue work after diagnosis.

It is clear that there is a huge need for every organisation to do more to help the increasing numbers of people affected by cancer who want to remain or return to the workplace.

Using our Cancer Coach knowledge, we have developed a range of courses to ensure that everyone in the UK affected by cancer feels emotionally supported in the workplace.
