Wessex Cancer Trust believes that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.
Every year around 23,000 people are diagnosed with cancer within the Wessex region. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family. Wessex Cancer Trust helps and supports anyone affected by cancer regardless of age, gender or type of cancer. Our dedicated team are committed to offering free support for as long as people need it, away from a hospital environment.
Our Vision: We believe that everyone living with cancer should have a local place to go, to get the support they need, when they need it.
Our Mission: To help local people living with cancer by offering emotional, physical and practical support.
A lot of what Wessex Cancer Trust does highly depends on volunteers, so you'll be joining a team of people committed to making a positive impact for local people living with cancer.
