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.
Feel free to call us on 053-9238555 to find out how we can help you. Total confidentiality guaranteed.
