Covid-19 Update

On 17 March we made the difficult decision to temporarily close our Cancer Support Centres, for the safety of our service users and staff. This will come into effect from Friday 20 March. We understand that our Support Centres are a lifeline for some people and we are working on how we can continue our support where we can. 

Cancer Support Telephone Service
We have introduced a telephone support service for anyone living with cancer. These lines will be monitored by your local Centre Manager. Please use this service if you need support through these uncertain times.

Monday - Thursday
10am - 3pm

Welcome to Wessex Cancer Trust Waterside Cancer Support Centre

You are welcome to drop into the Centre at any time during our opening hours, where our befriender service is always available to anyone impacted by cancer. You will be given a warm welcome and the opportunity to seek support or just simply be yourself within a relaxing, non-clinical environment, surrounded by people who have lived experience of a cancer diagnosis themselves or someone close to them. 

We offer a variety of other services including wellbeing activities, support groups, complementary therapies and counselling. We are experienced in supporting families who have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis, including patients, loved ones and carers.

We welcome families in all our Centres, however, our Bournemouth and Chandlers Ford Centres are designed to have specific services for young people, therefore families with young children may feel more at ease in either of these Centres.
