When you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer everything can seem like a blur. You may feel anxious and uncertain about what will happen next.
If you knock on ARC's door you will be greeted by a member of our staff or one of our trained volunteers who will chat with you over a cuppa about our services. You can then decide if they are for you.
ARC is here to help and support you and your loved ones through the emotional, physical and practical effects of cancer.
There are many different types of treatments which are unique to each individual. ARC offers a range of services that can help when you are having treatment. For example, one-to-one counselling, reflexology and acupuncture which can help with pain control, nausea and anxiety.
ARC also delivers a number of talks by professionals which can be beneficial during treatments. Topics include fatigue, nutrition or talking to children about cancer.
Many clients come to ARC after treatment. This can be a time when people feel anxious. This can be associated with many different factors, such as uncertainty after being discharged from hospital, fewer scans, going back to work or having to change preconceived future plans.
ARC offers survivorship programmes and one to one therapies that can help with challenges that may come about post-treatment.
All of our services are free of charge
