Connect with others at your local support group

Published on: 22 August 2018

Did you know Lymphoma Action has support groups across the UK? 

Many are organised by our wonderful volunteers and we are looking for more people to help.

Lymphoma Action support groups offer a safe and confidential environment where people can share experiences, ask questions and help each other through living with and beyond lymphoma. Our support groups welcome anyone affected by lymphoma and other haematology cancers - whether someone has a diagnosis themselves or a family or friend is affected. 

I quickly realised how valuable face to face support was. Through the organised talks from medical experts, I have also learned a lot about lymphoma.

Last year 2,500 people received support from one of our 50 groups and we’ve been busy launching new support groups to inform, support and connect even more people:

  • Chester le Street launched on Wednesday 15 August 2018
  • Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick launch on Thursday 13 September 2018
  • Preston relaunches on Tuesday 16 October 2018

We also have plans to launch groups in Darlington, Bradford, Taunton and Gwent over the coming months so watch this space!

Could you help us run a support group? 

Many of our support groups are organised by our wonderful volunteers who help to bring people affected by lymphoma together. We are looking for volunteers to run support groups in the North West and South West of England so if you are interested read more about the role and then please complete this form.

As a support group organiser I value the support myself. I like to think people feel less alone with their lymphoma.

If you’re not based in these locations but you’re interested in volunteering with us, please also complete the form and we can chat further about future opportunities in your area. 

Together we can make sure no one faces their lymphoma alone.
