About us

We are a local charity based in Alforde Street, Widnes and we aim to offer support to those in the Halton area whose lives have been touched by cancer. Patients, carers, friends and family are all welcome to attend the centre and we operate an “open door” policy between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday We have trained staff and volunteers available between those hours to offer a listening ear, a warm smile and a cuppa. We also offer counselling, complementary therapies and support groups. Along with this we also work with children and young people when an adult in their life has cancer, we do this by offering support sessions in their school.
