Coping with Cancer
Cancer support services to support yourself and family during a difficult time
Coping with cancer can be difficult for both yourself and those around you. This can affect an individual in a number of ways; physically, emotionally, financially and through other practical effects and impacts. There are a range of different services within Leicestershire to help you at this difficult time, from help with practical considerations, financial worries or one to one emotional support. In addition there are support services to help and support your family and friends in a number of ways including carer’s support.
If your health is affected by cancer, you can get support from both experts and support groups within your local community. There are a wide variety of organisations locally and nationally offering a significant amount of support, advice and information. First Contact Plus works with our partner Coping with Cancer who are based in Leicester and Leicestershire who provide free support within your local area (see ‘what’s in my area’ for further information).
