Watch our latest update on new support groups

FORCE Cancer Charity will be starting three new support groups in the New Year.

The Talk and Coffee sessions are for people with a primary diagnosis of cancer, those living with the disease as a chronic condition and carers.

There will be six 90-minute sessions for each group, held at the FORCE Support and Information Centre in Exeter.

They are designed to offer people the chance to get together and share their experiences. The groups will be led by specialists from FORCE, including the charity’s lead information nurse Annie Kerr and oncology support specialist Emma Ellis.

The opportunity for group sessions has been limited by the coronavirus pandemic.

Infection control restrictions on people sitting together in the FORCE reception area have also reduced the amount of contact cancer patients and their loved ones have had with one another.

The new groups, run under strict COVID protocols, will help bring people together again.

Space is limited so please do not hesitate to contact FORCE for more information or to join one of the groups. Call 01392 406151 or email
