    So how can we help?

    Your Experts in Cancer Support

    We’ve been helping people affected by cancer for over 30 years. We offer support to people who have a cancer diagnosis, those who are recovering from cancer and those living with cancer.  In addition we support family members or carers of people affected by cancer. 

    We offer:

    • Online support including courses and classes and virtual support groups
    • In-person group sessions at our Tim Pryor Centre
    • 1-2-1 Counselling and Complementary Therapies at our dedicated centre.
    • Complementary therapies on selected hospital wards funded via NHS charities.
    • Specialist services for Children and Young People including counselling, play therapy and art therapy.

    To find out more please fill out the form below. We are a self-referral service (you don’t need to be referred by a healthcare professional)

    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.
