Cancer Champions 5.0

What is it?

The Wokingham Cancer Support Network has been established to support people living in and around the Wokingham borough that are affected by cancer.

Meeting other people with similar experiences can be invaluable. Self-help and support groups offer a chance for people to talk to others and come together to share experiences and concerns.

How does the scheme work?

The aim of this project is to support people in a range of ways, including:
- direct peer-to-peer voluntary support
- monthly group meet-ups
- an online chat facility
- information/signposting hub
