Shared experiences and mutual understanding can help reduce isolation and strengthen your abilities to cope.

Support groups are often made up of patients with the same type of cancer. The majority of the groups at FORCE are facilitated by healthcare professionals for people with a diagnosis and some are for the people supporting them too. A few groups are run by patients and carers with occasional input from healthcare professionals.

When possible, all the groups listed below meet at the FORCE Cancer Support Centre.

Keeping in touch with others has been more challenging than ever since lockdown, so FORCE is offering a series of online support groups for people with cancer and their families to stay connected.
Please contact us on 01392 406151 if you wish to know about these or other local and national groups which may be able to support you.

FORCE Art Group

Expressive art is a way to explore your emotions and develop a greater understanding of how you are feeling and why. The FORCE Art Group is held at our Support and Information Centre on Thursdays from 2-4pm (classes are running online during COVID) and offers a chance to explore colour, shape and texture in an informal, relaxing and supportive environment. Anyone affected by cancer is invited to join our creative sessions. If you are interested, please contact Annie Kerr on 01392 406151
