Cancer Support UK

At Cancer Support UK we provide practical and emotional support to adults and children living with cancer

We support people with all kinds of cancer across the UK.

Our services are designed and delivered by people who have experienced cancer themselves – to improve the experience of others.

Cancer Coach

Have you finished cancer treatment? Are you struggling to adapt to your new normal? Do you feel unsupported when tackling the emotional challenges of post-treatment life?

Cancer Coach is our free support group programme for anyone who has completed their physical cancer treatment. Held over the phone and online video, groups are run by trained facilitators and take place once a week for 6 weeks. Talk to others who understand what it’s like – as they have experienced cancer too.

Cancer Kits

We offer Cancer Kits to people currently undergoing treatment as a practical aid to recovery. We have Cancer Kits, Chemo Kits and Kids’ Kits, which we supply free of charge. The Kits include practical items for people receiving cancer treatment and can be ordered for yourself or a friend or family member.

Chemo Kits - our Chemo Kits are designed specifically to help people undergoing chemotherapy. They contain items to offset some of the unpleasant side effects of treatment, like cold hands and feet, nausea, and sensitive teeth.

Cancer Kits - our general Cancer Kits are designed to help adults who are not receiving chemotherapy but are undergoing another form of cancer treatment.* They contain items like puzzle books to relieve boredom, relaxing pillow spray to aid sleep, and toiletries to use on the go.

Comfort Kits - our Comfort Kits are designed for older cancer patients, aged 65+, who may have different needs to younger people undergoing treatment. Comfort Kits contain items that provide warmth and comfort, such as a microwavable hot water bottle, heat pads to ease aches that may come as a result of treatment, and a travel pillow to make spells in hospital that bit easier.

Kids' Kits - our Kids’ Kits are designed to brighten the days of children living with cancer and undergoing treatment. They contain small toys and colouring sets to help entertain and pass the time in hospital, and practical items like cosy socks and antibacterial wipes.
