Cancer Support UK provides practical and emotional support to people living with cancer, both during and after the treatment period. We support people with all kinds of cancer across the UK.

What We Do

Cancer Coach

Our Cancer Coach support groups are available to anyone who has completed their physical cancer treatment and is experiencing low mood, anxiety and worry, and doesn’t know how to move forward in their recovery.

The course takes participants through a series of weekly facilitated group sessions, run for a six-week period over the telephone or online video. The sessions take participants through a series of strategies, techniques and exercises that aim to furnish them with the tools, support and coping strategies that can help them on their recovery journey.

Cancer Kits

Our Cancer Kits include a range of practical items for adults and children currently undergoing cancer treatment.

Cancer Kits have been designed by people who have had cancer themselves, to provide practical and handy items that people will find genuinely useful during their treatment.

We have Cancer Kits, Chemo Kits and Kids’ Kits, which we supply free of charge to people living with cancer in the UK.

Why We Exist

We undertook a comprehensive review of the charity as a whole, of our services, and the external environment in which we operate. We looked at what provision was already out there for people with cancer and sought to identify where there remained gaps in support.
