Tayside Cancer Support

For cancer patients, their relatives, friends & professionals

About Us

Together We Can Make a Difference

During or after a diagnosis of cancer and treatment, many people feel angry, fearful, isolated or traumatised. Whatever the emotions, there is support within the third sector.

Tayside Cancer Support was set up to meet these unmet needs and, as time has progressed and with the effects of the global pandemic, people are in greater need. Anxiety, stress and loneliness have heightened and the opportunities for support through the more traditional routes have diminished. Our befrienders offer on-going professional support and our therapist offers counselling and therapies for those with more pronounced challenges.

The feedback is fantastic through continued fundraising and support from volunteers we aim to continue and grow this quality service
