Virtual cancer support in Sussex

The Macmillan Horizon centre offers virtual support to people affected by cancer in Sussex in a way that works best for you. Whether that’s a regular phone call, an online support group or help as and when you need it.

About the Macmillan Horizon Centre

The Macmillan Horizon Centre in Sussex offers people living with cancer a place to relax and find support. The centre also has online services and support groups, so we can be there for more people affected by cancer in Sussex who may be unable to visit our centre in person.

You can find more information about visiting the Macmillan Horizon Centre here.

Horizon Connect - video sessions

Horizon Connect is an online support group facilitated by the Macmillan Horizon Centre. You can join for virtual ‘face-to-face’ video meetings with others. It allows you to talk with those in similar positions and can provide both support and practical hints and tips.

The sessions are free and run every Friday at 10.30am for 45 minutes.

To join these sessions, or if you have any more questions, e-mail horizoncentre@macmillan.org.uk and we will email you back with instructions on how to join.

Support over the phone

Call the Macmillan Horizon Centre for regular phone-based support or just call us for a one-off chat. You can phone us on 01273 468770 between 9am and 4pm.

During an initial phone call with either Scarlett or Elaine, you can decide if you would like follow-up calls and the frequency of these.

Follow up calls will be carried out by our wonderful Macmillan Horizon Centre Information & Support Volunteers.

The following phone services are also available for anyone affected by cancer in the UK. Please note these are not run by the Macmillan Horizon Centre in Sussex but Macmillan Cancer Support itself:
