Cancer Connections

At Cancer Connections we help people going through the roller-coaster experience of cancer diagnosis, treatment or bereavement, to return to normal life and enjoy again their family, work and leisure. We are not a hospice. We are a volunteer charity whose members have experienced cancer themselves and now help others affected by cancer, living in the Northeast of England.

We have a friendly cancer Drop-In 3 afternoons a week, specialist counsellors, family support, benefits and financial advice, information about cancer, complementary therapists, telephone and bereavement support and home visits. We have a minimum part-time staff to keep running costs as low as possible.
