We aim to build deep, long-term relationships with the individuals, trusts and foundations that support us with significant gifts, and we passionately believe that, by maximising our partnerships, we can achieve more effective, lasting change.

We have a very wide range of projects that need funding across our Cancer Support Centres and other community services. Whether you wish your gift to be restricted to a specific project or area, or whether you can allow us to use it where the need is greatest, we will keep you updated on the impact your investment with us has made.

Fundable projects include:

Counselling

Counselling sessions can provide a space for people to talk though their problems and find more meaningful ways of managing the impact of a cancer diagnosis. Our counsellors listened for over 3,000 hours last year.

Complementary therapies

A range of treatments aim to improve well-being, help with pain management and increase self-confidence. We provided over 4,000 hours of free therapies last year.

Children and Young people’s service

We have developed purpose built areas in our Chandler's Ford and Bournemouth Centres where young people can meet others in a similar situation and receive specialist counselling and play therapy.

Sing for Life

Singing and friendship make us feel great, so for our Sing for Life groups to stand side by side and join forces in song is excellent therapy.  The groups meet weekly and regularly perform in public to raise awareness and funds.

Transport and Mobile unit

Last year we provided 11,000 passenger journeys for those attending hospital appointments for treatment. Because many of our patients travel together for daily treatment they support one another and share experiences.
