About Tayside Cancer Support

At Tayside Cancer Support, our aim is to offer support, valuable information and befriending for anyone affected by cancer in Tayside and the surrounding area. We are a charity currently based at St Aidan’s Centre in Broughty Ferry, Dundee and have been helping people in Tayside and the NE Fife area who are in some way affected by cancer since 1994.


All our services are provided free to our clients and with increasing numbers this meant that we had to look at ways to raise the necessary funding to continue to provide these important services.  As well as applying for grants, increasing our marketing effort etc we now hold several events throughout the year e.g., our annual golf day and Christmas fayre, which helps bring in this much needed revenue.

In the coming years as the number of people diagnosed with cancer continues to grow, we will see an increasing need for our charities services and we hope to continue to provide them in an evolving and innovative manner.  

Message from our Chair, Linda Swan and picture of Linda:

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. Feedback is fantastic and we aim to continue this quality service. Can you help us? I am committed to helping as many people as possible. Consider this....can you help? A few hours volunteering; organise a fund-raising event; offer prizes for our Christmas raffle or Annual Golf Day or enter a team. There are so many ways you can support us and, in turn, support your community face the challenges cancer can bring. I would be happy to engage with you to discuss ideas!
