Free services and support for you and the people caring for you

We’re here from the moment you’re diagnosed, for you and the people around you.

So, whatever it is you need, just ask! Whether it’s advice from healthcare professionals on side effects or treatments, knowing what you’re entitled to and applying for welfare benefits, or just wanting someone to talk to, we’re here.

Thanks to the generosity of our fundraisers and donors, our services are free for you to use.

Managing emotionally

Cancer affects all areas of life, including your emotions. You may feel frightened, overwhelmed, anxious or you may even find it hard to believe that you have cancer when you are first told.

Managing practically

Cancer can bring about changes to your physical and mental health. We can advise you on how to manage any practical concerns you may have as a result of your diagnosis.

Managing financially

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, it might affect your financial situation. It can have a huge impact on your working pattern or hours, and a knock-on effect on your finances.
