Mind Over Cancer - wellbeing support programme

Getting further support

In partnership with specialist youth charity, Mind Over Cancer, young people who need further support can apply to take part in monthly new free mental wellbeing sessions between October and May.

Had a great time on trips this summer? Met new friends, hooked back up with old ones? We know, whilst being heaps of fun, your trip will also have brought back some memories about your time dealing with cancer, and that can be hard.

Our support groups are full of care, kindness, joyfulness and friendship. It's a place to learn, process and reflect and to look after your wellbeing.

Would you like to join a free online group where you can remember the good times with the Trust and talk with people who understand about some of the issues it may have raised? Maybe you just want to chat to new friends who 'get it'.

The pilot sessions of up to 10 young people will take place for 14-17 year-olds and over 18s every month from October to May and are open to anyone who attended either a first-time or return trip in 2023. Think you could benefit? Apply now.

CLOSING DATE: Friday 29 September 2023.
