So how can we help?
We are here to support you.

To find out more please fill out the form below or call 0114 2784600. We are a self-referral service (you don’t need to be referred by a healthcare professional) and we aim to see you within 5 working days of you making contact with us.
All our services are available to cancer patients or if you are supporting a member of the family or someone close to you. We can also offer our well-established peer-to-peer telephone support service, Cavendish Cancer Buddies. Find out more about our Cancer Buddies support
We provide therapies which can help with the management of symptoms of cancer and its treatment.
Our weekly classes include online relaxation classes, chair yoga and traffic light tapping. All of which can help manage stress, tension, overwhelm and anxiety in a caring and supportive environment.
We have a Wellbeing Course which addresses key areas including practical mindfulness, managing worry, nutrition and better sleep and is supplemented by a comprehensive online support course.
Our Expert Nutrition Sessions provides practical advice informed by current scientific research on common topics that may affect someone with a diagnosis of cancer.
We are currently piloting a Moving Through Grief course which explores loss through movement, breath and sound.
Help us be there for those who need us
Cavendish Cancer Care is funded almost entirely by the generosity of the local public. We are proud to work in an integrated way with our NHS partners to help support patients and their families, but we are not an NHS organisation. We are a local, independent charity, largely reliant on fundraising and donations to keep our doors open.
We could not provide essential support for thousands of people affected by cancer without the generous support of the wider community. Our supporters organise and attend events, take on challenges, give one off or regular donations, run hundreds of miles, remember us in their Wills, pack countless bags and much more to ensure no-one has to face cancer alone. It’s thanks to people like you who mean we can continue to support these families but also grow, develop and reach new people who need our support.
