Support Groups allow people to talk about their experiences and feelings with others living with cancer. Being part of a group often creates a sense of belonging that helps each person feel more less alone and provide a sense of control.Meeting formats vary from group to group.

All are facilitator led and many include the support of a Health Care Provider. Confidentiality is very important.

Group activities may include guest speakers, social outings, fundraising activities and there is usually a cup of tea and an opportunity to chat.

Due to current Covid 19 restrictions face to face meetings are postponed. Virtual meeting via Zoom are taking place or being considered by some groups.
