During the past year Wessex Cancer Trust has supported my family and made a massive positive impact on our lives. Wessex Cancer Trust aims to help everyone affected by cancer offering support and help when it is much needed. In the last year my family has needed this type of help and support and the volunteer befrienders, councillors and other professionals have been amazing. From offering a warm friendly smile and a cup of tea through to complimentary physical treatment, the team of people are amazing. And so now I would like to give a little something back.

Wessex Cancer Trust believe 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 is committed to offering free support for as long as people need it.

At all of our cancer centre clients are welcomed by our volunteer befrienders who are equipped to provide information, support and a listening ear. Our team of specialist counsellors are there to help deal with the emotional impact of cancer and our complementary therapies aim to improve wellbeing, help with pain management and increase self-confidence.

 Wessex Cancer Trust also provide dedicated children's services, singing therapy groups, programmes to help people move on from cancer and a transport scheme which provides over 20,000 passenger journeys each year. 

 Each year Wessex Cancer Trust are able to reach over 8,000 people in the local community.
