Do I need to be a cancer patient to come to Cancer United support group meeting?

No not at all – Cancer United is for all those whose lives have been affected by cancer- friends, relatives, and carers.

What happens at the Cancer United support group meetings?

We are a bit of a social club. People coming together who have shared the same experiences – the trauma of a diagnosis, treatment and side effects. There is lots of chatting going on during the meetings – lots of laughter – a bit of exercise which is optional and then a discussion about what is on the social agenda as well as our vision and plans for the future. Sometimes we have guest speakers on a range of topics – largely not cancer!!!

What is the age range of the members?

Cancer United is like a family and within every family there are older and younger members. Cancer United is no different as we have some younger members and some more mature. An eclectic group, who embrace each other, support each other and just enjoy being together.

How much does it cost to be a member?

It doesn’t cost anything to become a member. The only thing we ask is that if you take part in the general exercise session you pay £3.00. We do have organised social outings and events which members do have to pay for on a pay as you go basis.

Where are the venues for the meetings?

Littlehampton – Wick Parochial Hall 76 Wick Street

Worthing – Heene Road Community Centre, Heene Road Worthing

What time do the meetings start and finish?

Members start to arrive from 6.45pm onwards.  No one has to stay for the duration – if they want to leave before the finish, it’s absolutely fine.  The meetings finish at 9.15pm latest.
