Self Support Groups
For many people the opportunity to join in with, or develop, groups that offer mutual support is a real benefit. Recognizing this, CancerCare is pleased to facilitate or support several self-support groups.
Some groups use CancerCare premises and others use different facilities, including the great outdoors! The groups currently available are:
An opportunity to maintain friendships and practise skills acquired in earlier group sessions. Weekly meetings are held at Slynedales, Lancaster and Lakes Centre, Kendal
Weekly private sessions are offered at Capernwray Hall and Sandgate Hydrotherapy Pool, Kendal
Monthly, volunteer-led, manageable walks. Bring your boots and a packed lunch!
CancerCare facilitates monthly meetings for two groups, the Breast Care Group and the Young Breast Care Group, at each of our centres in Kendal and Lancaster. All of the meetings are supported by trained staff or volunteers.
CancerCare facilitates monthly meetings of The Bay Prostate Cancer Support Group at Slynedales. There is always a warm welcome for new patients, spouses, partners and carers.
