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.

All groups listed below meet at the FORCE Cancer Support Centre.

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 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
