Help change life with cancer. For good

Feeling alone or isolated?

Living with cancer can leave us feeling lonely and isolated which can have a serious impact on our overall wellbeing. We believe that no one should go through cancer alone and have developed a combination of living well services to help you feel less alone and more connected.

There is a growing body of evidence that suggests harnessing the power of community can improve our overall sense of health and wellbeing particularly for those facing illness.  Feeling empowered to talk about your feelings is an important part of the healing process both emotionally and physically.

If you’re feeling alone and struggling to cope with your cancer diagnosis we’re here to help. Our whole person approach to cancer support gives you the opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings with others in similar situations and spend time with a trained counsellor.

We run a range of living well services to help you tackle feelings of loneliness and isolation. These include:

  • treatment support clinic;
  • residential courses; weekly peer support groups such as Nordic Walking and Yoga;
  • counselling

Due to the risks posed by COVID-19 we are postponing all face-to-face services until further notice. However, our Helpline is still available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9am-3.30pm if you have any concerns and we are continuing to offer our counselling, nutrition, and doctors 1:1 sessions by phone. Please contact bookings by emailing if you would like to speak to someone about this.

For more information please call our Helpline on 0303 3000 118 or email
