The Charity as a whole, offers patient and family support to anyone affected by cancer from the point of diagnosis onwards. Our main focus is the psychological wellbeing of those accessing our services.

Coping with a cancer diagnosis can be a very traumatic time and different forms of relaxation can help individuals to face some of the difficulties encountered. We have a wonderful complementary therapy service at Croston House which brings much needed calm and peace. We also run a craft and an art support group and an eight week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy programme.
