Close to you in community

We know that having a support network can make all the difference when facing a cancer or haematology diagnosis. Through the online and in-person services below we hope you’ll feel reassured and encouraged that you are not alone in this.

Patient community

Our online community offers a safe, supportive and private place for you to connect with fellow patients.

You’re welcome to join the group at any time, whether you’re seeking peer support or advice or the chance to share honest chat and feel part of a community.

Hair loss support service

"I found the support on the FoA coffee morning catch ups really helpful, and met some really strong brave women who showed me that I could get through it.  You’ve got this, and we’ve got you" - message to a new group member from another member

Brew + Blether

Every Monday at 10am

Everyone is welcome to join our weekly virtual coffee mornings, or bi-monthly in person meet ups! 

The relaxed hour or so is hosted by our wellbeing team with fellow patients blethering about everything from daily life and celebrating milestones to sharing anecdotes and personal experiences of treatment.
