Sheffield Cancer Information Hub
Welcome to the Sheffield
Cancer Information Hub
The Sheffield Cancer Information Hub is brought to you by Cavendish Cancer Care and is funded with the kind support of the Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group.
Although because of COVID restrictions the Hub is currently close to face to face contact here you will find useful information and links to resources from local organisations who have expertise in the support and information provision for cancer patients and their families. Our goal is to provide a one stop shop where you can find links and resources to support you on your cancer journey.
On this page you will find links to local organisations based in an around Sheffield who can support you if you are in the local area. National charities also provide a wealth of support on specific cancer types, screenings and conditions as well as helplines and support forums. You can find information and links to these on the Cancer Information Hub page via the button below
Although every effort is made all the information is current the partner organisation is responsible for the content of their own websiteCancer Information Hub
The Sheffield Cancer Information Hub’s purpose is to promote the widest access to local and national support services to anyone affected by cancer. Based in the Sheffield city centre Moor Market it reaches diverse communities and provides information on prevention, symptoms, treatment, support and living with and beyond cancer.
