Support Services

I need support

What is Befriending Service?

It is a service that provides support to those impacted by cancer and whilst we are a faith based organisation our services are available for anybody who needs our support. Our trained volunteers will provide a befriending support service to you through their lived experiences of cancer.

We’ll match you with a trained volunteer who’s had a similar cancer journey to you whether it’s a personal diagnosis or a diagnosis of a loved one. They’ll be able to use their own experiences to answer your questions, offer support or simply provide a listening ear. The service is free and will be provided over the phone at a time that is convenient to you and the volunteer.

What is Bereavement Service?

Being able to reference difficult personal experiences by discussing them with others in similar situations can be helpful. Connecting with experts to support our journey is useful but dependent on the individual’s needs, for example children’s needs are quite different to a spouse’s or other adults.

Research, over many decades, has concluded that humans go through several stages when faced with grief. It is important to anchor oneself in the belief that everything will be ok. Hope is an integral part of our human ability to reset and recover. Many of us find great comfort in understanding how Islam guides us in coping with loss and the journey from this life to the next and what we can do for ourselves and the ones who have gone before us. “We are tested up to the limits of what we can bear.”
