We've helped almost 700 people living with cancer in Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight through our telephone and online services since the coronavirus pandemic forced us to close our support centres on 20th March. 

The coronavirus pandemic represents a particularly anxious time for anyone living with cancer. Many are having treatment delayed, are worried about a higher risk of infection or are feeling more isolated and vulnerable. To help, we're currently providing:

  • Telephone helpline covering our four support centres in Bournemouth, Waterside (Hythe), Chandler's Ford and the Isle of Wight
  • Telephone counselling
  • Facebook support group
  • Coffee and catch-up sessions across Hampshire and Dorset
  • Email mentoring and support provided by befrienders
  • Dedicated online support featuring advice, videos and information
  • Virtual sound therapy support groups
  • Daisy Bus transport taking Isle of Wight passengers to their appointments at Southampton General Hospital, and the service will return to QA Hospital Portsmouth as soon as it is needed again

With most of our fundraising or events postponed or cancelled, we've set up a Just Giving page to raise money so we can continue to be here for local people living with cancer throughout the pandemic and beyond. To make a donation, click here
