Every year around 23,000 people within the Wessex region are diagnosed with cancer. A diagnosis
can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family. That’s Wessex Cancer Trust are committed to providing
free support for anyone affected by cancer.

Cancer is a cruel leveller, it doesn't care who you are or what you do. The WCT are there to support you and your loved ones if you are battling the disease, no matter who you are.

Wessex Cancer Trust believe that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.

Community is at the heart of Wessex Cancer Trust – we put services in local communities so people affected by cancer have somewhere to go at a time when they most need support.


A diagnosis can have a huge impact on the entire family. That’s why we’re committed to providing free support to anyone affected by cancer for as long as they need us. Our six cancer support centres are safe places for people to receive the emotional, practical and physical support they need.


From coffee mornings, to craft groups and wellness classes, people come together to meet people who understand what they are going through. We’re proud that our centres are a safe community for anyone affected by cancer.
