Penny Brohn UK is a National charity providing free care and support to anyone affected by cancer, before, during and after treatment.

We know that cancer affects so much more than your body which is why we promote a whole person approach to cancer care and support. This approach aims to help you be more emotionally and physically resilient, for better quality of life and to help improve outcomes.

Based on over 40 years of working alongside people with cancer, we understand that being diagnosed with cancer can feel overwhelming. Our evidence-based approach will help you feel more informed, empowered, and in control.

We offer care, support and understanding. A range of ways to learn how to make simple lifestyle changes. Find out about, and experience, complementary therapies that are safe for you. And, tips and tools to support your emotional and physical health and wellbeing throughout your cancer journey so that you feel more like yourself again.

All of our services aim to complement, but not replace standard medical treatment, and are available free to anyone affected by cancer in the UK.

Supporting someone with cancer?

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 and your own health and well-being is important.
