    So how can we help?

    We are here to support you.

    We are here to offer support to local families affected by cancer. Cavendish Cancer Care has over 30 years experience in providing emotional and physical support, and have experienced professional therapists available to help you and your loved ones at this time. Although the Tim Pryor Centre is temporarily closed, we are providing telephone and online services, including counselling, body-based therapies and specialist support for children and young people. If you or a family member needs help please fill out the form below or call 0114 2784600 and leave a message.

    We can also offer our well-established peer-to-peer telephone support service, Cavendish Cancer Buddies. Find out more about our Cancer Buddies support 

    Help us be there for those who need us

    Cavendish Cancer Care is funded almost entirely by the generosity of the local public and we’d like to thank everyone for their kind messages of support over the last few months.  Sadly, a large number of events and fundraising challenges have been cancelled or postponed for this year, meaning we are having to adapt to different ways of bringing in the income we need to continue our services. Donations from people like you are even more important than normal. We may not be at a stage where we can hold a big get together, however the good news is that there are still lots of ways you can support us, ensuring that we can be here for the local families that so desperately need us during this extremely difficult time.

    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.

    If you would like some information to pass on to friends and family, you can download a leaflet about the support we can provide by clicking here.
