Wessex Cancer Trust believes that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.
Every year around 23,000 people are diagnosed with cancer within the Wessex region. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family. Wessex Cancer Trust helps and supports anyone affected by cancer regardless of age, gender or type of cancer. Our dedicated team are committed to offering free support for as long as people need it, away from a hospital environment.
At all our cancer Support Centres, clients are welcomed by volunteer befrienders who are equipped to provide information, support and a listening ear. A team of specialist counsellors are on hand help deal with the emotional impact of cancer, and complementary therapies aim to improve well-being, help with pain management and increase self-confidence.
We provide health and well-being information, exercise programmes and courses to help you move on from cancer.
Each year Wessex Cancer Trust reaches over 8,000 people in the local community.More info
To help vulnerable people overcome challenges in their lives that prevent them from leading a fulfilling and rewarding life. We believe that having a safe place to call home is a fundamental human right and without this everything is a challenge. Can you imagine what it must be like to not know where you are going to sleep tonight and stay safe?
