Our Story

The Hope Cancer Support Centre was founded in 1999 by a group of people who were affected by cancer. From their journey, they recognised that there was a need for a service to give emotional support and practical information to people whose lives are changed by a cancer diagnosis.

Since that beginning, the Centre has grown each year and provides support for hundreds of people annually. The Centre provides emotional support to people affected by cancer including those who care for them, from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment and afterwards. This gentle and caring support takes place in a confidential, professional and non-judgmental environment.

The underlying principle of Hope is that everyone is a unique individual with their own set
of circumstances and will respond in their own way to the challenges that cancer brings.
We will always respect and support you on your personal journey. We ensure a confidential, professional and caring service in a peaceful environment. All our services are free of charge.

Everyone who comes to the Centre is given the opportunity to meet with a support nurse and discuss how the cancer diagnosis has affected you and/or your family. The nurse will take a brief medical history and, together, you can decide how best the Hope Centre can support you.

We are here for you! Everyone is welcome to call in and enjoy a cup of tea, a chat or to sit quietly and read a newspaper or a book.

Here at Hope we offer our services and therapies free of charge.

Testimonial

What our clients say…………………….

‘’The Hope Centre as it is affectionately known, is more than the name conveys.  It is a place of warmth and compassion where you are always greeted with a smile.  It is a place that recognises your journey, we are all travelling the same path.  The wonderful services on offer are amazing, backed by professional and sympathetic people. Non-intrusive and very private.’’

‘’We found the Hope Centre a great help in dealing with our emotions after diagnosis.  The services here are very helpful and the staff couldn’t be nicer. The reflexology and the art classes couldn’t be better. Thank you.’’

 

Martin & Marian

 

‘’I really thought art class very enjoyable.’’

 

Kathleen

 

‘’Art – Most enjoyable and satisfying – a therapeutic experience that I can take home and continue using.  Reflexology - I loved this service – very relaxing and really good when one feels a bit depressed.   Lymphodema Therapy -   I enjoyed this service but the odema is very resistant to treatment.  Fitness program – excellent, although the weather interfered. Library - I use it and found some inspiring reading. Staff - Generally exceptionally caring and pleasant.  I love having a quiet cup of tea at the Centre.’’ 

Ildicko

 

 

 

‘’The Hope Centre is a place where I have found new friends and support.  I have found the services provided second to none and the friendly welcoming staff make living with cancer that little bit easier to deal with, their friendship and understanding means a lot to me and from the first day I walked into the Hope Centre their support has helped me to deal with it and I now have a new outlook  on life.  I can’t thank all the staff enough for just being there for everyone.’’
