Welcome to Tayside Cancer Support
At Tayside Cancer Support, our aim is to offer support, valuable information and befriending for anyone affected by cancer in Tayside. We are a charity (Registered Charity Number SCO22798) currently based at St Aidan's Centre in Broughty Ferry, Dundee and have been helping people in Tayside who are in some way affected by cancer since 1994.
The service we offer is free and confidential to anyone affected by cancer - this can be as a patient, a family member or friend / colleague. All our volunteer befrienders are professionally trained to enable them to offer this support. The befriending contact may be by telephone or face-to-face, depending on each individual's circumstances and needs.
Our Support Groups offer support, friendship and reassurance as well as therapies (including reiki, reflexology and massage) and other group activities which may include talks and demonstrations depending on what the group members choose to fit in with their needs.
25 years supporting cancer patients in Tayside
We are having a silver celebration. It is going to be a cross between a party and a coffee morning.
There will be teas, coffees and stalls. We want it to be a celebration of still being up and running 25 years later. There will be face-painting and we will have some music.
The free event will run from 10am to 1pm, with a cake-cutting ceremony taking place at noon, as well as a raffle and donation buckets. Rosalind, one of our valued volunteers said, 'the charity has made a real difference to the people it has supported over the years.'
