We provide support

Weston Park Cancer Support is our frontline support service.

It gives patients and families emotional and practical support, help and guidance, a place to be and people to be with.

We also work in the community, and with trusted partners, wherever possible, to help patients in a place most convenient to them.

Current projects

Independent living support

Are you living with or recovering from cancer? If so, you might need a little extra support to keep you safe and well at home, or get you back on your feet.

Transport service

Are you having cancer treatment and live in the Chesterfield, Barnsley or Rotherham area? If so, our transport service could provide you free, safe travel to and from Sheffield hospitals.

OutSwimming Cancer

OutSwimming Cancer is run by Chesterfield Borough Council and funded by Weston Park Cancer Charity. It provides free swimming sessions for people living with or beyond cancer.
