    So how can we help?


    Cavendish Cancer Care is a local Sheffield charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer in South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

    We believe no one should face cancer alone, so we provide emotional and physical support through counselling and therapies for patients, carers and their families.

    Our services are provided free of charge; we rely on donations, fundraising, and help from volunteers to continue our work. We provide the support that local families deserve.

    What we do

    We work alongside the NHS, offering professional counselling and therapy that complements and supports medical treatment. Our team of skilled counsellors and therapists specialise in supporting those with cancer. The services we offer are 100% free of charge and are tailored to each individual’s needs.

    We help people feel more in control, more confident and more able to cope. And we’re just a phone call away on 0114 278 4600. We are a self-referral service, so you don’t need to be referred by a healthcare professional. We’ll aim to see you within 5 working days of you making contact with us.
