If you'd like to connect with local people affected by lymphoma, why not join us at our next support group meeting. Everyone is welcome, whether you have a diagnosis or are close to someone who has.

Please see below for meeting dates and other useful information about our group.

About our group

Our friendly and caring group launched in 2016 and meet a few times throughout the year. Everyone affected by lymphoma (over the age of 18) is welcome, whether you are a patient yourself, or someone close to you has had a diagnosis.

We often have a speaker come along to talk to the group but we also make sure there is time for you to chat and give each other support over a cup of tea or coffee. We provide the refreshments for free.

Going to a meeting for the first time

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. 

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.

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.
