Welcome to Cancer Connections

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.

At 258 Harton Lane, South Shields, you will find a real 'home from home' for anyone affected by cancer and someone to talk with who understands what it is like to have cancer.

If you think we can help or you would like more information please call us on 

0191 456 5081

Visitors are asked to wear a mask, will have a lateral flow test for Covid-19 on arrival and social distancing will be observed. 

 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.

We provide:

Cancer Drop-In                        Telephone Help                          Counselling                      

Welfare Benefits Advice           Complementary Therapies         Family Support       

Information about Cancer        Bereavement Support for Adults, Families and Children

Essential Information

Cancer comes as a shock to everyone and it leaves lots of questions for which you will need answers. At Cancer Connections we can help you find the information you need. There are few things arising from cancer we haven't come across so try us - telephone or drop in, we're here for you.
