Complementary therapy is provided to support patients emotional wellbeing, to help with anxiety, to aide sleep and to encourage patients and carers to take time for themselves to support their emotional wellbeing.

A drop in centre provides a safe space for patients and carers to access support, receive information and advice with a member of staff always available to support patients. Our volunteers also offer a warm welcome to patients who wish to drop in for a cup of tea and a chat. We also offer group support, and mindfulness courses.

All our services are free at the point of use, making this service accessible to every cancer patient, and carer who need support at any point during the cancer journey, from initial diagnosis, treatment, remission, or living with, or beyond cancer. We will support patients at every stage.
