We work in partnership with specific healthcare providers to offer free living well services across the country to meet the needs of as many people as possible. Our Living Well services can help you discover the things that make a big difference to the way you cope with cancer. Things like eating well and managing stress and dealing with the emotional impacts of the disease.

Many people start out with our local services, then continue their journey, attending a residential course at our National Centre or by accessing our online self-care resources. Wherever you live, we are here to support you in whatever way we can.

Supporting someone?
Being close to someone who’s been diagnosed with cancer can have a major impact on your life as well as theirs. It can be just as hard for you as it is for the person with the diagnosis. That’s why we offer support to the loved-ones of those living with cancer because you are just as important.

In connection with our Royal Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, we are now delivering Living Well Courses from Dumfries House, Ayrshire.

This is a two-day, non-residential course that explores the various aspects of the Bristol Whole Life Approach and how it can help you live as well as possible for as long as possible with the impacts of cancer.

You’ll discover simple ways to eat well, manage stress and stay active to support your on-going health.  And you’ll find out how to relax, make time for the things in life you love and have a greater sense of control over your health and wellbeing.

By learning more about your immune system and how it works to detect and destroy cancer cells in your body, you’ll discover some of the things that you can do to strengthen your health and build your resilience.

You will leave with a detailed plan for any changes that you want to make and usually having forged some friendships to support you along the way.
