Support Groups

Support Groups

ARC provides a number of monthly Support Groups, co-facilitated by peers and a therapist.

“Peer support” is a term that is used to refer to support and help received from a fellow patients or person with a similar condition. Peer support facilitators at ARC are trained to carry out this facilitation and all groups are supported by a trained counsellor.

These groups provide support to people with all types of cancer and operate on a drop-in basis. They are currently running online on Zoom.
