Information and support centres

Wessex Cancer Support provides free and local emotional support to anyone affected by cancer in Hampshire, Dorset and Isle of Wight. Clients may have cancer themselves, be adjusting to life after cancer, supporting someone with cancer, or bereaved. Through its four cancer support centres in Chandler’s Ford, Bournemouth, Hythe and Newport, the charity offers a drop-in service, professional counselling, complementary therapies, activities and support groups. It also runs weekly drop-in sessions in Andover, and has recently launched an online support service for anyone who can’t access a physical support centre. It runs services in the heart of the community, including the popular Sing for Life choirs and transport on its Daisy Buses to help Isle of Wight patients get to their hospital appointments on the mainland.
