Please do phone us if you feel you would like some support. If we feel we are not the most appropriate service for you then we will always try to help you find someone who is. Your loved one does not need to have accessed any of our services.

There are 3 drop-in groups which are run by volunteers. They support patients, and/or families following diagnosis of life limiting diagnosis or after the death has occurred. These are self-support social groups which aim to alleviate social isolation, providing a friendly ear and chance to meet together. Some social outings also take place.
