Support Group

by Tayside Cancer Support

Cancer, Support Group, Activity

Studies have shown that involvement in support groups or receiving the one-to-one support that befriending offers, can not only enhance the quality of life, but can actually increase the longevity, of people diagnosed with cancer.

Our Support Group offers support, friendship and reassurance as well as therapies (including reiki, reflexology and massage) and other group activities which may include talks and demonstrations depending on what the group members choose to fit in with their needs.

We have a Support Group in Forfar. If this meeting place doesn't suit, we're already working on setting up groups in Perth and Dundee. If either of these are of interest, please contact us for more details.

Here's what some of our Support group members have to say about their experiences in their group:

"They are a lovely group of people, warm and welcoming and we have so many laughs and good times together that I would miss it so much if it wasn't there."
Norma

"I have found the people at the group to be a great circle of friends. We talk, laugh, have therapies every second week and do various things in between, also plenty tea and coffee. I think anyone coming along would thoroughly enjoy themselves, as it is certainly not all doom and gloom, far from it!"
