CancerCare was established in 1983 to provide support to cancer patients and those around them in an informal, relaxed manner.

Facing cancer, whether as a patient, carer, or family member can be a life-changing experience. CancerCare helps people as they come to terms with these changes through providing emotional, social and psychological support.

We offer support to people of all ages and we are acknowledged for our work with children and young people affected by Cancer via our dedicated Children and Young People’s Service.

Our support services are all offered free of charge by experienced, qualified staff.

CancerCare is a local charity and our support services are concentrated throughout North Lancashire, South Lakeland and surrounding areas. We cover this wide area from two local centres, our head office ‘Slynedales’ near Lancaster and ‘The Lakes Centre’ in Kendal.

Both Slynedales and The Lakes Centre have dedicated facilities for individual and group therapies.
