Our Support Groups

At the Olive Tree we run a number of support groups where you can come along and meet others in a similar situation to share experiences and advice in a relaxed, friendly and mutually supportive atmosphere. Please contact the centre prior to your first visit to make sure that the group is meeting that week. 

The Secondaries Club

The group offers an opportunity for people with dealing with the challenges of a secondary cancer diagnosis to talk openly about their experience and to receive support from each other. Speakers are also invited to give talks/demonstrates on topics of interest.  If you are living with secondary cancer you are warmly invited to come along. The group meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 1p.m.

Drop-in Sessions
