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 to 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 request other types of information, including our popular Lymphoma matters magazine, on the same form.

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

Room Rosa, Health and Wellbeing Information Centre, Building 1, Ground floor, Stratford Hospital,  Arden Street, Stratford upon Avon CV37 6NX

Parking

A reduced parking fee of £2 is available at the hospital multi-storey car park only. The displayed fees will apply to all other car parks and spaces. We will provide you with details when you arrive at the meeting and you pay the parking fee on your departure. 


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.
