Cancer information and support

If you or someone close to you is affected by cancer, you can get free information, support and advice.

On this page:

Cancer information

General information about cancer, how to spot it early, treatments and side-effects, specific types of cancer, and ways to reduce your risk of cancer.

Find cancer support

If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer and you're finding it hard to cope, we can help. Find out about free supports in your local community and beyond to help you through.

Coping with your emotions

A cancer diagnosis can be devastating but you are not alone. Whether you've been diagnosed yourself or you're caring for someone with cancer, there are free supports available.

Practical support: Organising travel, money and care

Dealing with the cancer itself is only one aspect of coping. Financial concerns, getting to and from treatment, and work worries can pile on the stress when you least need it.

How to reduce your risk of cancer

Did you know? 4 out of 10 cancer cases can be avoided by living a healthy lifestyle and avoiding bad habits.

Life after cancer: Tips and advice for cancer survivors

Information for cancer survivors including coping with side-effects and emotions, follow-up care, dealing with practical issues and living a healthy lifestyle.
