Cancer Lifeline

Practical help and support groups

At our “home from home” base we provide a wide range of vital support and information programmes to support individuals & families who are facing a cancer diagnosis. The project is unique in that it is run & managed by people directly affected by a cancer diagnosis so when people come to us seeking out support they can talk to others directly about their fears, because they have been through the same experience. The project is a user led model of practice, where services and programmes are shaped and informed by people directly affected by cancer.
