Our Drop-In Centres
We know that asking for all the information you need during treatment or check-ups isn’t always possible. Sometimes concerns aren’t just about the physical side of cancer but about the emotional or financial side, and then, a friendly and relaxed
environment to talk in is what is needed.
Our drop-in service is staffed by highly skilled volunteers. Our volunteers will help support patients and carers and answer questions about living with cancer, help with access to other resources or even just to listen and share a coffee.
