Support group meetings

The Cambridge group is running to schedule and Christchurch will meet this month on Tuesday 29 September (date change from usual schedule).

Indvidual session: online support available now

Support groups aren't for everyone and can be a little overwhelming at first.  If you'd prefer to talk to someone 'one to one', in confidence, we can offer an online session with one of our trained volunteers. Zoom is user friendly, effective, and we can talk any time. We also offer sessions on Skype, Facebook Messenger video and WhatsApp. Please call us on 0800 273 222 or contact us to arrange a call. You're not alone. We're here to help.

I'm a partner, caregiver, friend

Caring for a partner, family member, or friend with breast cancer can be hard and talking to someone who understands the stresses and strains can help.

Please call us on 0800 273 222 and let's chat.
