Online support meetings

Anyone aged 18 or over, resident in the UK, who is personally affected by lymphoma, including carers, is welcome to join a Lymphoma Action online support meeting. Some are also open to people affected by other blood cancers.

Our online support meetings are hosted on Zoom by Lymphoma Action staff and volunteer facilitators.  Meetings last for one hour and usually take place monthly.

Please register for your preferred meeting by completing the form below.  Once registered, you’ll receive email invitations to your chosen online support meeting, with simple guidance on using Zoom and information about how the meetings work.  

  • For security and confidentiality, we send unique joining instructions for every meeting to the registered participants.
  • You don't need a Zoom account or experience of using Zoom but will need access to an internet-enabled device - laptop or desktop computer, tablet or smartphone - with a microphone and good audio sound, preferably a web camera or video option, and wi-fi or an internet connection.  

Please note that occasionally Lymphoma Action emails with the '@lymphoma-action.org.uk' domain go to junk mail. We recommend checking your junk mail or adding the domain to your safe senders list so that you don't miss out on our emails.

If you are new to online meetings and need additional technical help to access ours, the charity AbilityNet provides a support service. 

Your registration automatically adds you to your nearest support group, so we can send you information when we have a date for resuming place-based groups. 

Volunteering

We are recruiting volunteer Online Support Facilitators.  If you would like to know more, please register your interest.
