Counselling

Our doors are open to you

It is always difficult to go through a new door and particularly when it is associated with cancer.

You can drop in anytime without an appointment to visit any of our centres. You are also more than welcome to make a phone call first if you feel that would be easier for you.

A comforting space

Our doors are open to you at ARC Cancer Support Centres

The drop-in areas are calm, non-clinical, comfortable environments where you will be able to have a discreet chat with one of our professional staff members or trained volunteers.

Our aim when you arrive is to provide a warm welcome and a confidential safe space that will help you relax in comfort.
