Cancer Connections, located in South Tyneside in the North East of England, is a charity dedicated to serving individuals and families suffering from cancer and its after-effects.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our Drop-In centre is currently closed but we are still available to offer you our help and support.
Please telephone 0191 456 5081 to speak with our staff – counselling, welfare benefits advice, information about cancer, family support and “Someone to talk with who understands” are all available.
Our Director, Fay Cunningham, has recorded a little message for you, and you can see it here

Although treatment in the NHS is very good, many people need emotional and practical help when trying to return to 'normal life' after cancer. Talking and sharing your anxieties with someone who has been through the same experience can be an enormous help.
If you have cancer, have had cancer in the past, are caring for someone with cancer, have a child or family member with cancer, or have been bereaved, you are welcome at Cancer Connections.
At 258 Harton Lane, South Shields, you will find a real 'home from home' for anyone affected by cancer.
