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.

Please feel free to drop-in or contact us on 0161 746 2080 at any time.
