Support & Information Service

We work to enhance the quality of care given to Trafford residents by ensuring they have access to accurate, timely and appropriate information on any aspect of cancer, which is tailored to individual need and delivered sensitively.

We offer people the opportunity to talk about their experiences in a confidential, non judgemental environment whilst giving them the choice to take away or be guided through information.

The service is available to anyone who is worried about, having tests for or living with cancer, including family, friends and carers. People can access the service by dropping into the Centre, telephoning or emailing us or visiting a community outreach session. Our outreach programme operates from various locations across Trafford providing ease of access to support and information for local residents. Further details of the outreach programme can be found on this website under the events page.

Members of our team also visit community events or give talks to local groups to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms and importance of early detection of cancer and would be happy to visit an event or group you are involved with.

Please feel free to drop-in or contact us on 0161 746 2081 at any time.
