Going to a meeting

Anyone affected by lymphoma (minimum age 18 years) can attend a Lymphoma Action support group.  You don't have to book or even let us know beforehand that you are coming along - just turn up, you'll be made welcome.

There is no charge for attending a Lymphoma Action support group, though donations help us continue to provide local support. 

At your first meeting, you will complete a registration form, which also enables us to keep in touch with you about future meetings.  You can also request other types of information, including our popular Lymphoma matters magazine.

You can attend our support groups as often and for as long as you need - you aren't expected to come to every meeting and don't have to tell us if you won't be there.  If you move on but then want to come back, perhaps because of a change to your lymphoma, that's fine, too.

Venue

Aylesbury Multicultural Community Centre, Friarscroft Way, Aylesbury HP20 2TE.

We meet in the Harding Lounge, which is on the ground floor.

The venue is a five minute walk from Aylesbury town centre.

Parking

There is limited free parking (12 spaces) at the venue, with one Blue Badge space reserved for disabled drivers. 

Friarscroft multi-storey car park (£3.00 for 2 hours), is immediately adjacent to the centre.  It is open until 9pm but the group closes at 8.45pm, so there should be time to retrieve cars before it closes.

Other parking options include the 30+ space car parks at Whitehall Street (£2.50 for 5 hrs, free after 9pm), and Cooper’s Yard (£2 for 3 hrs, free after 9pm), which are about 10 minutes' walk away

By train

The venue is a few minutes walk from Aylesbury national rail station, with trains to Marylebone via Amersham or High Wycombe and Aylesbury Vale Parkway.  Marylebone trains stopping at Amersham connect with London Underground Metropolitan line trains into central London via Harrow-on-the Hill and Finchley Road.

By bus

The venue is a few minutes walk from Aylesbury bus station, with services to and from surrounding towns and Aylesbury. 


How we can support you

A diagnosis of lymphoma can sometimes feel overwhelming and it can be helpful to reach out for support. We have many different services and ways in which we offer you support, whether you have lymphoma yourself or you know someone who has. Support groups are a place where you can meet other people affected by lymphoma, share your experiences and receive information in a mutually supportive environment.

Whether you are new to lymphoma or you have been living with the condition for a while, you may have questions or concerns or maybe you'd just like to talk things through with someone who understands. You can contact our helpline services between 10am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, via phone, email and Live Chat. Find out more.
