The Nightingale was formed by a local group of concerned individuals who felt that more could be done to support people affected by cancer in Enfield. We aim to work together with existing local services to ensure that we provide comprehensive support.
We are here to help patients, relatives, carers, friends or those who are affected by cancer. We hope to be able to provide you with help along the way.
Remember, you are not on your own...
When you are facing a frightening illness it may seem that no-one can understand or help. Talk to us, we will listen, and hopefully do more, by providing advice, counselling and practical solutions to the situations you may face.
The Nightingale relies totally on voluntary income, it can only continue to help in the community if it has community support.

About The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre
The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre was launched in 2002 to help residents in the borough of Enfield whose lives have been touched by cancer
and who were somehow slipping through the established care system.
A research project was undertaken to identify services that were obviously needed and those that were already being provided.
A steering group of health experts, social care workers and legal and business professionals came together with the aim of forming a new charity
that would specifically meet the needs of Enfield borough residents.
The Nightingale serves patients, relatives, carers, friends and those who are concerned about cancer care. We hope to be able to provide help and information
to those who need it along their journey.
We aim to work together with existing services within the borough and to co-ordinate local volunteer teams so that valuable resources are used to
We run our services from The Lancaster Centre which is situated on Lancaster Road, a short distance from Enfield Town. Both the W8 and 191
buses run past the centre and the nearest train station is Gordon Hill.
