Tayside Cancer Support
Tayside Cancer Support offers the opportunity for anyone affected by cancer in Tayside to receive emotional, social and practical support, either on an individual basis or in a group setting.
We offer a free, confidential, one-to-one befriending service for those affected by cancer in the Tayside area. We also help to establish support groups which can offer a valuable network for people facing a diagnosis of cancer or if they are struggling to cope with a loved one’s illness. In addition, we provide specialist Mindfulness courses for anyone affected by cancer.
All our volunteer befrienders receive professional extensive training prior to providing any service. In addition, all befrienders must also attend regular supervision and ongoing training organised by the charity. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance, not just in the context of the Befriending service, but also within group meetings and supervision. Although the charity is a voluntary organisation, the commitment of our volunteers is essential, as we pride ourselves in offering a sensitive, yet professional support.
