Cancer Support Directory and Personalised Support: Navigating Your Journey

At Cancer Card, we understand that every cancer journey is unique, and the type of support needed can vary greatly from person to person. That's why we've created our Cancer Support Directory and offer personalised assistance – to provide you with comprehensive guidance and referrals to a wide range of services that can help you navigate this challenging time.

When you use our directory and support services, you can expect:

A Comprehensive Range of Support: Our directory includes a diverse array of charities and services, catering to your varied needs. From well-known national organisations to smaller local initiatives, we cover a broad spectrum of support, ensuring that you can find the help that's most relevant to your specific situation and location.

Personalised Recommendations: We know that finding the right support can be overwhelming, especially when you're already dealing with so much. That's why we take the time to understand your unique needs and provide tailored recommendations that can make a real difference in your life, whether you're looking for practical help, emotional support, or just a small gesture to brighten your day.

Access to Local and Community-Based Support: While larger, national charities provide invaluable resources, we recognise the importance of smaller, local services in providing targeted, community-based assistance. Our directory includes both, ensuring that you can be connected with the most relevant support for your specific needs and location, even if you're in a deprived or rural area.

Free Listings for All: We believe that every service helping those affected by cancer deserves to be easily discoverable and accessible to those who need it. That's why we provide our listing service completely free of charge to all charities and non-profit organisations, regardless of their size or resources. This inclusive approach ensures that even the smallest, volunteer-run initiatives are at your fingertips.

Overcoming Digital Exclusion: In-Person Support and Digital Helpline

We understand that digital exclusion is a significant barrier for many people affected by cancer. To address this, we have developed a two-pronged approach to ensure that everyone, regardless of their digital skills or access, can benefit from our extensive online support resources:

In-Person Support: Sometimes, no matter your digital abilities, what you really need is a person to talk to. Someone who can listen to your fears, answer your questions, and help you navigate the complex landscape of cancer support, both online and off. We are here for you, offering a compassionate voice to guide you through.

Digital Helpline: For those who need assistance navigating the digital world, our digital helpline is ready to help. Whether you need help accessing online resources, setting up accounts, or simply need a friendly guide to walk you through the process, our team is here to ensure that you can make the most of the digital support available to you.
