Tamworth Wellbeing Cancer Support Centre

We are a registered charity helping to support people affected by all cancers and other chronic illnesses.

The current TWCSC premises at Craven, Stonydelph, were opened in June 2014 to provide a welcoming, friendly place for anyone needing support or information about living with, or after a diagnosis of cancer or any other chronic illness.

A dedicated team of volunteers, led by the Centre Manager, work hard to help bridge the gap  between clinical and home environments.

Our Centre’s doors are open to everyone, whether it be yourself, a friend or a relative that is affected by illness.

Come and sit in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and let us offer you practical advice, emotional support or just a listening ear.

Living with chronic illness can feel like a very lonely time. Nobody should have to feel this and so this is the very reason our charity exists.

We offer holistic therapies, craft therapies, wellbeing projects.   We have wig fitting/styling facilities and bra fitting services.

We also hold specific support groups throughout the month and we always offer a warm smile and a hot drink with our very willing volunteers.

We have been fortunate enough to win the ‘Community Group of the Year’ award at the Tamworth Business & Community Awards in November 2016 and October 2017.  Our Centre Manager Paula Da-Silva was also named as highly commended runner up  in the category of ‘Citizen of the Year’ in 2016 and was a finalist in 2017.

In February 2017 we were presented with the  ‘Community Group of the Year’ award at the Spirit of Tamworth Awards.
