Run a support group

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. 

Run a support group

Lymphoma Action support groups welcome anyone affected by lymphoma, whether someone has a diagnosis themselves or family and friends.  

What do support group organisers do?

  • Organise and run a series of meetings that offer support and information.
  • Identify topics for discussion and organise guest speakers to attend.
  • Promote the group in the local area, with support from Lymphoma Action.
  • Welcome new and existing members. 
  • Facilitate discussions with a range of people and positively engage with others 

Is this role right for me?

  • An understanding of cancer or lymphoma is required
  • You will be at least 6 months on from completing treatment or starting on active monitoring.

  • You'll have compassion for supporting others and a positive attitude.
  • You'll have great communication and listening skills, be engaging and empathetic. 
  • You'll be proactive and have excellent organisational skills. 
  • It's a longer commitment of at least a year so you'll be a committed individual, yet it is a flexible opportunity.
  • You'll be provided with an induction and support throughout the role.

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.
